Recoil Spring and Casing Ejection Distance
« on: January 06, 2018, 07:54:21 PM »
Just took my new-to-me CZ83 (380 acp) to the range and it functioned 100% reliably. Lots of fun to shoot.
One question though, mine ejects the spent brass about 20 feet (I'm shooting on a concrete pad so no doubt they are bouncing a bit).
Is this normal for the 83, or does it indicate I may need to replace the recoil spring?
The gun was built in 1990 and may have original springs for all I know...

I would replace it. If it still does it at least you have a  replacement.
SHUT UP AND RELOAD!

That sounds like the safe thing to do.

I see that Wolff has springs with higher rates.
My inclination is to stay with factory ratings, but what advantage would higher rates offer?
Less perceived recoil perhaps?

A stiffer recoil spring in my Polish P64 resulted in a slight but noticeable reduction in recoil.  Probably work the same way in a CZ.
