DPM Recoil Reduction System - Shipping World-Wide

So I installed my new triple-recoil spring assembly from DPM Systems in my FNX 45.

Last night I took it to the range to see if it made a difference. The FNX was always a soft shooter, so I was skeptical it would help at all.

Boy was I wrong. It made a HUGE difference!!!! My FNX now feels like a less-flippy 9mm. Everyone should get one of these! Just make sure you work the slide a bunch of times and leave it locked back overnight before using it the first time, so the springs are loosened up.

Also, the system is designed to reduce wear and tear on your gun, so it will extend the life of your pistol.

Nice review!

I noticed another thread about the DPM recoil system. Maybe this can be merged with the other thread to keep things simple.

I just got mine in but haven't fired it yet. First I put in the heavier silver spring since the instructions say use it for .40/.45 but slapped in the gold and it just feels better/smoother. I will try both at the range and try to detail my experience. I'm convinced this spring is affecting the recoil of the firearm just by racking the slide back.

i've found DPM's customer service lacking. they do have a US distributor but dealing with the company in greece has been unfruitful.

I just received yesterday a DPM drop shipped from Greece, ordered from Zahal Israel and apparently run over by a truck or two before delivery. Both the springs and the guide rod are bent, the package ripped and torn and neither are usable. I have sent Zahal an email and hope that their customer service out of Israel is productive. I was all excited to see it finally arrive. Then upon seeing the packaging and the damage I was greatly disappointed. I will post on the follow up from Zahal Israel. This was for my FNX 45T.

Has anyone noticed a difference in recoil or muzzle flip between the 2 springs? I put the silver spring in and havent tried the other. I got a little more range time with mine and shot both it and my buddies new kimber and there was a very noticeable difference between the 2. Ive so far just shot the winchester white box ammo but i put 200 rounds through it without a hiccup.

I received a prompt email reply from Zahal wanting to see photos of the damaged DPM that I recently received. They have promised another shipment. So far, customer service seems good. I am looking forward to trying out this system on my FNX 45T.

Range report :

Took both my FNP Tactical and FNP USG to the range Friday and today. Ran 250 rounds through the two guns, with and without the new springs/guiderods. Both worked great, a few hangups in my tactical out of the first 2-3 magazines but none after that.....I'm calling it a break in period because after that it ran flawlessly. Comparing the with and without the new springs installed, I really believe I was getting back on target quicker with the new springs. If they reduce felt recoil it would be no more than 20% but it was noticeable. Accuracy was the same, excellent as usual.

Suppressed shooting, everything functioned fine. Again part of the initial rounds that jammed in the tactical were suppressed but that went away after 30 or so rounds. Probably put close to another 100 through it suppressed without any failures. Between the two different guns both worked great with the suppressor attached, between the two fired close to 200 rounds suppressed.

All in all I'd say these new springs work well, only time will tell how long they hold up. Forgot mention but I was strictly using the silver springs, never even tried the gold ones. Also, was shooting Tula 230gr steel cased ammo so not exactly high power ammo.

When I looked, I didn't see a gold/silver option. Am I missing something?
I won't be ordering until I get back from a month long trip to hell.
The FNP 45 kits I received each had two springs included, one gold and one silver. The gold one is supposed to be for lighter loads and the silver for more full power loads. I believe this is the norm for the replacement kits, you get one of each per kit.

Tried the DPM Recoil system today. 252 rounds down range and I tried the silver, gold and stock spring and honestly couldn't feel any difference between them. All three springs performed flawlessly.

I really wanted a better felt recoil after spending the money on the DPM, but it just didn't happen for me.
