There are several guns out there that work better on single recoil springs. The Colt Mustang 380 is one of them. They came from Colt with a double spring set up exactly like the Kahr 380. They function better with a single spring and wolff gunsprings makes these in several weights. Gun manufacturers don't always do what is best, they frequently do what is cheapest or easiest. Plastic guide rods, plastic triggers are just a few examples. A single recoil spring allows for tuning of the action to the load you want to use. Heavy loads like the Buffalo Bore 380 ammo would cause less wear & tear on the gun if the recoil spring was stronger. This is commonly done in many guns, I just thout I would check and see if anyone has experimented yet.
