    How many rounds can u go thru before replacing the recoil spring in a m&P COMPACT 9

    Issues? What kind of issues?

    Do you make a Smith Wesson M&P ez 9 recoil spring

    That is the dumbest comparison I’ve ever seen. 1. If you really want to compare accuracy put it in a machine rest.
    2. The only thing this test demonstrates is that it changes the point of impact
    3. Heavier springs almost always decrease recoil and muzzle flip, and almost always compromises reliability especially with light loads.
    Conclusions: Stick with factory.

    Full size shield??

    Are the stock guide rods steel or polymer? Any sub $300 guns have steel internal parts? Does increasing the lbs increase the chance of a jam??

    Excellent guide rod for the MP 2.0 Compact. 20lb makes a noticeable difference with felt recoil and follow-up shots. Thanks
