    1911 Springs

    I know we have some 1911 gurus here. I'm curious as to how a 24# main spring and a 16# recoil spring would work in a 4" steel 1911. I'm looking for the right balance in a pistol that has NO issues with feeding or otherwise. I learn a lot by asking questions that I have a Idea on but, it's still not completely clear as to which way it should go. I'm also thinking of changing to the EGW firing pin stop, with a less rounded radius.

    I am no guru but - have saved some bits and pieces from posts on THR a ways back dealing with springs in general.

    In case of any interest will attach some text files - they are already saved on the forum so go grab them from this thread link -

    I use a 21 pound recoil spring on my Commanche, same as the original. It works great.
