I change mine every 2500-3000 rounds, personal preference.
Put a new #17 in it before the last range trip, and maybe 200 rounds downrange that trip (had a couple of hangups on the feed ramp when manually dropping the slide on a full mag, but no other issues). I think I like the idea of a slightly heavier spring. Think I'll try out a #18.5.
