    New recoil springs will not go on my P380

    Hello friends.

    I ordered new inner and outer recoil springs and a new Stainless guide rod for the P380 and I have been trying for 3 hours to install the new rod and springs and they are just not going.

    The new rod is 2 mm longer and I am wondering if it is the longer length coupled with the crazy stiffness of the new springs that is causing the issue.

    I can get it to the point were the end of the guide rod is contacting the inside of the rod hole on the inside of the slide, BUT IT WILL NOT go in enough to allow the flange end to seat on the barrel.

    I put both springs on the new rod and compressed them on the vice in hopes to shorten (compress) them...still wont go.

    Any advice is much appreciated.

    Thank you!
