How often should I replace my recoil spring in a .22 auto handgun? Any basic principles to go by?
If/when you start having jamming/ejection issues. Refer to your manual too. Myself, I figure every 3k rounds is a good measure. They're usually either cheap or free. I had a 22 pistol with issues thought spring could be cause, manufacturer sent me 3 at no cost. Layer found it wasn't the problem, or at least not only problem. Lol
I have a colt huntsman I bought back around 1972 and its still running on that oringinal recoil spring. That pistol has had some many rounds fired it would be hard to quess.
I recommend getting spare parts if/while you can. Nice gun.
Probably never have to change.
For my carry guns that shoot mostly +P+, every 2000.
For everything else, when they don't work anymore.
