Sig Classic Pistol Recoil Spring Color Guide

About the Sig Classic Recoil Spring

When working on Sig Classic Pistols it is important to have the appropriate recoil spring. This table will guide you to the correct spring for the pistol that you are working on.

Most of the Recoil Springs for this line of pistol are color coated so that they can be identified. However, what happens when you need to replace them and the color has worn off over the years? The Sig Classic Pistol Recoil Spring Color Table below will help you find the correct replacement for your pistol. 

Replacement schedule of your Sig Classic Recoil Spring

Sig Sauer recommends that the Recoil Spring should be replaced after 5,000 rounds (see our Sig Classic Pistol Preventative Maintenance Guide) and a symptom of a weak or broken spring could be when your slide does not close completely. But before replacing the spring check out our Sig Classic Pistol Trouble Shooting Guide.
