Having issues cycling low power "bulk" 22 ammo? Using a reduced power recoil spring may help alleviate the problem. The factory recoil spring in the Smith & Wesson M&P-22 is approximately 4 pounds. Our reduced power recoil spring is approximately 3.3 pounds. The reduction in spring weight may help your pistol cycle lower power ammo for more reliable function. The ammo has to overcome the tension of the recoil and striker/hammer springs in the gun. Reducing the tension on the springs may help with reliability. There is no guarantee that changing to a lighter recoil spring will solve the problem 100% since the ammo still has to over come the spring tension of the striker/hammer spring. But this is a low cost, simple method that may work for your gun and ammo. NOT FOR THE M&P15-22

Keep in mind this is a new spring and therefore it has not yet "set" or been compressed yet. So the first time you install it may seem too long but it is the correct length and will become shorter after being compressed. See the installation instructions for a tip to install new recoil springs in Walther type 22LR pistols.

Installation Instructions RESTRICTIONS
 
1) Activate the takedown lever.

2) pull back the slide all the way to the rear and pull up the back side of the slide.

3) While holding the rear section of the slide up allow the side to move forward and come off the frame.

4) Remove the old recoil spring.

5) Install the new recoil spring and reverse steps 1-4. Using a rod the diameter of the internal diameter of the spring will aid in guiding the spring onto the guide rod while assembling the gun. (See the photos below).

Spring diameter is much to large to work in the 15-22

1 of 5 SPRING DOES NOT WORK January 21, 2021
Reviewer: James Yon from Palm Coast, FL United States  
BOUGHT SPRING TO TRY AND USE SOME SUBSONIC WINCHESTER AMMO. THE PISTOL WOULD NOT CYCLE THRU AFTER ROUND WAS FIRED HAD TO MANUALLY EJECT THE SHELL. ALSO SINCE THE SPRING HAS BEEN INSTALL FOR SEVERAL DAYS IT WILL NOT FEED THE ROUND INTO THE CHAMBER I HAVE TO PUSH THE SLIDE FORWARD TO LOAD THE ROUND. SO I HAVE REMOVED THE SPRING AND PLACED THE ORIGINAL SPRING BACK.

Taylor-Tactical Response: Does the pistol cycle the subsonic ammo with the factory strength spring?  Does the subsonic ammo cycle other 22 pistols you may have?

3 of 5 Very long spring May 21, 2020
Reviewer: Tracy Couch from Hanceville, AL United States  
The spring is almost twice as long as the factory spring and very very difficult to install. Actually seems to be stronger than the factory spring once I finally got it in after a very long string of 4 letter words. It may just need a break in period or that's what I'm hoping. I've only shot one 15 rd mag to test it so far and had 3 failures to feed because the slide didn't pick up a new round. So yes it's definitely a stronger spring right out of the box instead of reduced power. I had no issues with the factory spring except when I mounted a Vortex venom red dot and it wouldn't cycle is why I wanted a reduced power spring.
