Light recoil spring

Anyone install the Volquartsen light recoil spring to use with standard velocity ammo? Any noticeable difference to make it worth the cost?

The standard factory recoil spring works fine with CCI-SV in my MkII Target. It's not a well used recoil spring either, because the entire pistol is new. Found it at a pawn shop in Wisconsin. I did run 200 rounds of HV before trying SV just for break in proposes.

I've never had any problems with SV ammo using the Ruger factory spring on my three MKIIs. The only time I would try using a lighter recoil spring would be on subsonic ammo.

I recently installed the VQ recoil spring assembly, but for the opposite purpose -- I wanted the heavy spring for use with hot ammo. However, I did try several mags of CCI-SV, and it worked perfectly with the heavy spring. Not to say this makes it ideal for SV, but to point out that I definitely wouldn't worry about using the standard-strength spring with SV, unless a particular pistol is known to have a problem.
