Good Afternoon everyone! Me and a buddy both separately built a "Glock 19". We both used the SCT serialized frame and a PSA Dagger slide. Internal parts were different but the slides came with a recoil spring. When he took his out to fire he noticed it would not cycle properly. He ordered a NDZ kit that had a new recoil rod and spring set (15# and 13#). It worked fine only with the 13#. I went ahead and ordered mine just incase. Took it to the range and the factory 18# failed to pick up the next round. The 15# failed to do the same and the 13# worked. This testing was done with both factory blazer, federal hst and some hand loads. All 3 failed until the 13 was put in. Problem with this is I don't like the feel of the recoil it is very sharp and fast. I prefer a heavier slow recoil. Is there anything else we should be looking at? It feels like we are putting a bandaid on the problem. As a side note these do have holosun optics on them and PSA claims that with their dagger there is no issue with their spring on the dagger frame (I do not have one to test). With the current recoil it just is not pleasant to shoot feels like shooting a shorter micro compact.
