I just bought the M*CARBO recoil spring for my Remington RM380 pistol. I’ve had the pistol for a few years, and after 500 or so rounds and at least that many dry fire trigger pulls, the operation is as smooth as butter. (I also installed the Galloway trigger springs…apparently identical to the ones sold here…I bought them before I found this place!). And, best of all, with all those rounds fired, a combination of probably over 2 dozen types of ammo, I’ve never had a single misfire. On top of all that, I liked mine so much that I had it hard chromed, so now it is both reliable AND pretty.
But the sole weak link of the Remington is the ammo restriction…no +P. I’d love to be able to shoot the Underwood +P XTP or Extreme Defender rounds. Or maybe some of those hot Buffalo Bore loadings. But I don’t want to damage a pistol that I really like
Does anyone second my hunch that the stiffer M*CARBO recoil spring might mitigate some of the risk? I still wouldn’t use the +P loads as range ammo…I’d probably just settle on shoot ability/reliability of one and then use that as my carry ammo (and use the weaker loads for range time).
Any input would be appreciated.
