Recoil Systems
« on: January 19, 2019, 12:44:22 PM »
I am still getting familiar with my new 9MM CZ 75 steel frame compact.

I have replaced the plastic recoil rod with a SS one while retaining the
factory 16# flat wire recoil spring.

I intend to shoot only standard factory ammo.

I am curious... would the DPM or SPRINGCO recoil systems be of any
particular value to me?  ???

My personal opinion - use the money you would spend on an after market recoil systems to buy ammo and enjoy your 75. There is little to no benefit installing a mechanical recoil reduction kit.

I have the dpm recoil system for my cz p10c ug and my cz shadow 2. It makes a big difference in the cz p10c but not as much in the cz shadow 2

     Hiya mate, I've used the DPM for my compact and shadows, Factory and +p rounds as well. Had a mate swap the DPM for SS rod so I didn't know which was in the gun, and even tried blindfolded to find a difference. Found none and do replace any plastic rods with SS as a preference. So this operator finds no noticeable difference in handguns tested. Generally not much recoil to 9mm,and if you move from compacts to full size frames then ya notice a reduced recoil and muzzle flip. The Checkmate wien using its compensator rivals like half the recoil of say a Shadow. Thats using federal 115gr in 9mm.Cheers.

My question, has anyone tried a reduced power round recoil spring? The only option I've seen is a round 14lb version. I've tried this spring and it was weak, with some FTR to battery stoppages.

So is there a reliable spring option other than the factory flat spring?

     Hiya and thx for the thread RodE, and seeing barns reply reminded me to add a snipet that DPM uses to sell. They say theirs is a three spring system with one spring inside the rod. Mine also include a couple of extra springs allowing the operator to customize their spring needs. Among the products claims is reduced wear on the frame. With the investment we make its skilled marketing at the very least, My post in early october 2013 came to conclusion that I could not perceive a difference compared to SS. But the several I own are in the respective Cz's and the SS retired. Just in case ,right?
     Even tho advertisers aim at men and our psychology,in many respects we are as susceptible as the ladies whose favorite brand of shower loofa is the one that claims to remove cellulite. ha. Cheers Be well.

I had the same problem when I used the 14 lb. spring.  I contacted CGW about it, and they said that sometimes the 14 lb. just isn't strong enough.  They suggested reinstalling the stock spring.  I did and haven't had a failure since and using the stock spring isn't that much of a big deal anyway.  It should be noted that I polished the slide rails a little bit BEFORE using the 14 lber. 

I will try the lighter spring as an experiment after another 1000 rounds or so just to see what happens.  I can't risk problems with my Compact as it is one of my carry firearms.
