First Hang gun Beretta 92s -- Guide Rod Question

Found a nice used 92FS. Slightly use and taken care of, came with a 20 round clip. Paid $450 which seem fair (I guess). I'd post a pic but everyone knows what they look like... haha. Had a question about the spring for the guide rod.

I think it comes with a 13# spring. Replacing it with a 14 or 15# spring would that make much of a difference? Would it save wear and tear? The guide rod is plastic and I'll be replacing that soon. I really don't want to make too many modifications.

I plan on keep it.. It so cool.

Stick with the standard weight recoil spring.

My father passed away in August of this year. Very fast and unexpected. His gun collection came to me. Among his collection is a 92FS that he purchased new in 99. It's a good pistol. I've always liked the Beretta. Liked it in the Army and I haven't changed my mind over the years.
