Jack,

Welcome to the forum. I might suggest you stop by the Introductions forum and post a little something about yourself. Soon after you might find a few people will have some advice for ya

Have you tried cutting any coils off the spring? Tried an 11lb spring? Maybe your loads are too weak. If you are doing competition, your loads should meet minimum power factors anyway. You may also be limp wristing the pistol since you know you're shooting reduced loads....just not ruling out anything here at this point.

TWO choices:

1) increase powder charge AND/OR bullet weight.

or

2) install a 10.5 to 11.5 pound spring.

Best choice...

Get a CZ75B or a 1911

Well, let's just say that changing one thing at a time will narrow it down sooner than changing everything. Current factory rating for the G23 should be 18lbs...previous models did 17lbs.......not much difference really, but anything above and below should be considered extra power or reduced power accordingly. Might I ask if you are running a captive or non-captive rod? Round spring, or flat wire? I've been tossing the idea around myself for competition, but I only use factory ammo. Grip/hold that Glock just like you would with full power loads IMO.
