BHSpringSolutions LLC 24 lb MAIN SPRING: Dimensionally shorter than OEM, and substantially reduces effort to rack the slide from Hammer Forward. The reduced pressure on the Hammer/Sear Relationship may also reduce trigger break weight, making this Set-Up ideal for marksmanship and competition purposes. This Kit also Optimizes the Arcus 98 Series Hi Power Inspired Handguns by reducing the heavy double action trigger pull. Another side benefit…may help all models digest Light Reloads.
BHSpringSolutions LLC LIGHT FIRING PIN SPRING: This is the optimal Firing Pin Spring in all Hi Powers containing a Firing Pin Block/Drop Safety and Arcus 98 Series pistols. The Light Firing Pin Spring was also the OEM Firing Pin Spring in Arcus 94 and Kareen Mark II/III Hi Power Clones and Arcus 98 Series. In Hi Powers not containing a Firing Pin Block/Drop Safety, it is important to remember that the Hi Power’s Firing Pin Spring IS your protection from an accidental discharge if dropped on the muzzle with a round in the chamber.
One concern about utilizing a 24 lb Main Spring is “light primer strikes” causing Failure-To-Fire if utilizing a Heavy Firing Pin Spring. All BHSpringSolutions LLC testing of the 24 lb Main Spring has taken place with the BHSS Heavy Firing Pin Spring and No Failures-To-Fire have occurred. In Hi Powers not containing a Firing Pin Block/Drop Safety, utilizing a Heavy Firing Pin Spring is always the safest set-up.
RECOIL SPRING: One concern about lightening the Hi Power’s Main Spring, is the possibility of excessive rearward slide velocity during slide recoil and the slide unlocking pre-maturely (before bullet has exited the business end of the barrel. The principle of “Slide Velocity Synchronization” involves empty shell casing ejection distance of 4’-8’. When the resistance of the Main Spring is reduced, Recoil Spring health and Recoil Spring resistance is more important. For most users, of all models, using an Extra Power Recoil Spring for your model will be optimal. Extensive testing has occurred with 24 lb Main Spring and the Standard Recoil Spring for the model and empty shell casing ejection distance mostly remained within 8’. If using the 24 lb Main Spring with the Standard Recoil Spring for the model, utilize healthy/non-degraded Recoil Spring only. Any shooting of higher powered (+P) ammunition should always utilize an Extra Power Recoil Spring.
