    Recently acq'd a 'nib' (maybe 25 rds) ~'86? w/ fact. target, etc.

    I'm told not to fire regular comm'l ammo, as the recoil sprg is lite....

    ????

    The gun was old-- :-( , so I got it for a very low price. :)
    Felt so bad :-( , I bot ivory grips for it. I feel much better, now. :)

    Any load vs. spring recommendations?

    With a 200 gr. SWC bullet, 3.5 gr. Bullseye works nicely as a target/plinking load.

    If you want to fire combat/self-defense loads, buy a standard recoil spring.

    Wolf 18 lb. spring will work well.

    hi there, the gold cup is supposed to come with an extra spring. (the green one for cruds?) maybe you could find a spare at the buy and sell forum
