Identical guns, different recoil?


Recommended Posts

I'm relaying this from someone else. He has a Montefeltro and recently shot an identical Monte with the same ammo back to back and claims his has much more recoil. Neither gun has been modified. He thinks maybe he has a bad spring but I think a bad spring would simply cause function problems not excessive recoil. Any thoughts?

A weak spring could case function problems, but it could also result in the problem he has described. A weak spring offers less resistance to the recoil, which may reduce the amount of energy absorbed by the spring before it "bottoms out"; all resulting in more harsh felt recoil. What the spring doesn't absorb, the shoulder will.
