Need some help. I have a BT + micro that my daughter uses and the recoil reducer just doesn't seem soft enough. Does anyone know if there is a softer spring available to replace the factory original that is in the unit? Bulge.

You can get a Timney replacement unit from Midwest Gunworks or Wrights...or you can take the recoil pad off and unscrew that large slotted plug in the back of the unit...only go about 1/4 turn at most so it will still function...if you want to get rid of the original to help fund the Timney I would be interested if reasonable

I have a BT99 with a GraCoil LOP recoil reducer. This my sound strange but make it tighter ( harder to push in ) this will make it feel softer. When you make it soft it can't stop the recoil and it will have a harder recoil then a standard stock.
I have my BT99 and XT set to the hardest setting( bottom out ) and feels the softest.

Unfortunately Wrightsgunsmiths had the distributership for the Timney recoil reducer and they recently announced they would no longer provide them. Some time ago their was a thread here that described how to modify the factory original. Short of finding one used or modifying the one you have I'm afraid your stuck. I have seen plus guns that have been converted to the gracoil system quite successfully.

I had my sons converted to Gracoil by Rod's Sustom Gunstocks and was much happier with it than original Browning recoil reducer and the Timney ( that did not work, mine was defective from the gitgo). Gracoil works better and is much easier to adjust for the growing kid.

When my Grandson comes to visit he He use's my BT99+.
I went to my local ACE Hardware store and picked up about 1/2 dozen or so assorted springs of the proper size in cercumference but different flex capasity, and experamented until I found the right combo.
It did take some time.
