recoil spring

To follow up on my recent questions about function and failure to feed,actually to cycle, I'm going to go lighter on the recoil spring and see if that works.
Wolf has variable rate and standard rate springs.  Recommendations? What # spring seems to work with a lower power load? I am running a slide mounted Aim Point also.
Thanks! Kurt

Go with single rate springs.  I think you'll be best between 10 and 12.

I would go that route also.  Std rate ten pound springs work for both my wad guns.

spring depends on your gun and load. My wad gun usually runs a 13lb.

+1 

When I first started shooting lighter loads, I tried a variable-rate recoil spring in my Springfield Range Officer, and was having extraction/ejection issues.  Based on what I read here, I switched to a standard-rate 14lbs spring and things improved dramatically.  Since then, I've had a rail and MatchDot II mounted on it, so now it uses a 10 lbs recoil spring.  You Aimpoint is lighter than the MatchDot II, and every gun is different, but somewhere around 10 or 12 is the place to start.
