I would like to explore the recoil spring subject in a bit more detail and get the Masters take on the subject. I understand the nature of the difference between a variable wound and conventional wound recoil spring. However, what are the pros and cons of each? Which one is better for a Limited 40 and why? The way I see it, a variable wound srping unlocks the gun a bit faster, yet slows the slide down more as it compresses. Does it accelerate the slide in the reverse order, that is, accelerate the slide faster at the begining of its decompression and slows the slide down at the end of its cycle? If so, would it be a better choice for slide recoil management, that is if the above operation of the spring is correct. Would a variable wound spring affect which weight would be recommended? I would be interesed in any thoughts others may have on this subject.
