    I just cut about a coil and half off of my SR9's striker spring. :bowdown: Been wanting to for a while... Just had to figure out a way to secure the striker assembly to drive out the pin that holds the spring in place.

    The thing is often when you cut a spring it loses tension faster. So while you might be ok today, you probably shortened the life of that spring. I know some people cut striker springs, or heat half of it with a torch, etc. You just have to becareful how much you do, check it often, and replace when nessasary.

    Yea get some 600grit sandpaper, black polishing compound, and a new striker channel liner (like 1.50) take the striker and spring and put the 600 grit paper around it go back and forth in the striker channel about 10-20 times and turn it around in the strike channel a good 10-15times. After that take a qtip and put some of the black polishing compound and polish the inside of the striker liner and should get rid of any light primer strikes :wavey:
