The most proven, reliable and soft shooting recoil assembly for the GX4 series Taurus pistols is right here.
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.
This fully complete assembly is drop in ready and includes Lakeline designed and manufactured:
- Precision machined 17-4 Precipitation Hardened and polished SureFire® Stainless Steel Firing Pin (striker)
- 303 Stainless Steel Striker Guide
- 303 Stainless Steel one piece Spring Retainer
- High Performance Alloy Spring Steel Striker and Striker Return Springs
MADE IN USA!!!!
Drop in installation. Unload your pistol, visually confirm it is unloaded. Field strip the slide off of the frame, remove the backplate and pull out the striker assembly, replace it with the new assembly. Reinstall backplate and put the slide back onto the frame. See additonal notes below.
Additonal background on the SureFire Striker Assembly:
In the stock trigger you can feel the uneven and nonlinear pull just before the trigger releases. Replacing plastic stock striker components with precision CNC machined and polished stainless steel gives a consistent, low friction trigger pull.
The Lakeline Firing Pin is precison machined and uses the high performance precipitation hardened stainless steel that is electro-polished. This firing pin is hard nosed and will give you lasting, impact strikes.
Some companies aggressively market titanium parts for firearms in the name of weight savings and there are application where that significantly higher cost makes sense. The Lakeline SureFire Stainless Steel Firing Pin weighs less than 0.2 oz, about the weight of 2 pennies; we don't think doubling the price of the firing pin is worth making it weigh 1 1/2 pennies. Titanium also readily deforms and has low elasticity compared to stainless - which means you will have to replace it more often. We prioritize high quality performance at a reasonable price.
