Anyone know what the stock spring rating on a .38Super are. And if I dropped the spring rate down a pound or two, would it help in reducing a little bit of muzzle flip??
Nah, don't worry about it. When you said 'bind',I was thinking it was somehow folding or "jack knifing" during the cycle. But not simply bottoming out, but I guess it's just like when a coil-over sping bottoms out on a shock absorber in a car.It happens when the spring is too long, it can, and does sometimes bust frames and slides.
msjdgman explained "spring bind" pretty well...sorry I missed the post somehow, I was not ignoring you.
