The only con is that it doesn't have a captured spring. It comes with several interchangeable springs (of different spring-weights). That makes it a little more challenging to install than OEM. But totally worth the extra effort.

Personally, I like the ones with Viton rubber-like wraps. Just enough more comfortable when charging a round without being too squishy IMO.
