Recoil Assembly for the 9mm Springfield Hellcat pistol that includes:
  • Fully Assembled Recoil Assembly
  • Stainless Steel guide rod, sleeve, and end cap
  • Dual springs optimized for less felt recoil 
  • Your choice of tough finishes for the visible end cap: Stainless Steel, Black Nitride, or Gold Titanium Nitride
Lakeline Stainless Steel Guide rods have a reputation for being tough, really tough!  The Lakeline Recoil assembly is designed to be the last recoil assembly your Hellcat will ever need.  It is designed to be maintainable so springs can be changed if or when they eventually wear out.  This is NOT a throw away, that must be replaced when it needs new springs.  Spare springs are readily available for the Lakeline recoil assembly. 
Now fully assembled!  Just field strip your pistol, lube it, and put it in.
No plastic, or thin drawn parts!  The recoil rod is a single piece STAINLESS STEEL with the flange,  the most highly stressed part, machined as one piece with the Guide Rod.  
The springs are made from the best spring wire available and carefully finished to make sure that they will not over ride themselves or the flanges they ride on.  The Lakeline springs rates are also optimized and provide a smoother recoil pulse than the factory parts while still shooting all standard rounds reliably.  You don't have to select a light spring, that doesn't tolerate heavy loads, nor a heavy spring, that may not cycle regular range ammo with the Lakeline recoil assembly.  By optimizing the spring rates, choosing spring material that doesn't weaken under use as much as typical and using better spring and sleeve lengths, this recoil assembly provides lighter recoil with range ammo all the way to +P rounds.
Hellcat pistol shown for illustration only, not included. Includes one recoil assembly in the selected finish.
Does not fit the Springfield Hellcat Pro.

    Stainless Recoil Spring

    Posted by Outstanding product on 5th Dec 2023

    Before installing the recoil spring, I went through 150 rounds using the OE setup, then disassembled there at the range and installed the new recoil spring and went through another 150 rounds. The first few cycles of the slide did have me feeling as though there was a little less recoil, but only a slight change. If my plan was to purchase this spring setup for recoil-reduction purposes only, I cannot say that I would recommend doing this swap again unless other modifications were also being done in addition to this for combating recoil. For me, the snappy recoil is to be expected and I don't suspect that to change much. For me it was primarily for aesthetics purposes and the removal of the OE plastic. That said, I am very pleased with this part. The melanite finish looks great, and the rod no longer has the eyesore of the center hole and stippled, textured plastic of the flimsy OE rod.
