For the few of you who may have jumped on this bandwagon (like you, Master Cane), I am doing it yet again. I sold my first attempt to an unexpecting young fellow, who was just bug eyed over the power. I felt that just going only with the Clark setup was inadequate. Well, now that I am communicating with Sprinco, I am doing another (yes, Master Cane, with yet another Smith and Wesson - I just like to go with the BEST). It seems Sprinco is taking the approach that a fellow named Menck started years ago with specially designed recoil rods incorperating a built-in supplemental coil spring that prevents slide to frame impact - gradually - unlike buffers. I begin to notice peening to their recoil rod base. So my point for this posting is for anyone who has gone this route, have you found ANY signs of peening to the recoil rod base, link, frame, or anything else? To the best of my memory, I believe I had only fired 300 rounds of Georgia Arms ammo through it.
