I've found that when I replace springs with extra power recoil springs on some of my other pistols that the recoil becomes much more manageable. I purchased a set of 23lb and 25lb springs from Wolff. The factory spring is 21lb. It's easy to tell them apart as spring length increases with weight.

I tried the 25lb spring first under the philosophy that if this is too powerful, it will be evident shooting 115gr bullets and I can move to the 23lb spring. I shot about 150 rounds using this spring with zero malfunctions / issues. Recoil was noticeably reduced and follow-up shots were faster. Slide locks open 100% on last round.
Definitely a keeper.

Each spring also came with an extra power striker spring. I installed this as well. Cocking via the squeeze cocker is more difficult. I'm assuming this spring increases primer ignition reliability, but I've never had an issue with the stock spring giving me weak primer strikes. Minor downside that it requires more grip strength with no appreciable upside. Meh - I may go back to stock.

This is an affordable and functional upgrade.

Good info, Rootshot. Thanks. I've been using mostly 124Gr stuff I may mess with spring weights. Love the P7s.
