    New Wolff Springs Arrive!

    I ordered a set of Wolff (Colt Defender) recoil springs on Monday and they arrived today. I will post pics if anyone would like?

    The stock weight is 19lbs so I ordered (2) of those and (1) 21lb to try and experiment with.

    Installing tomorrow and hitting the range on Sat. Will report!

    Feels strange to replace any piece of a fairly new piece but from what I hear the 3" 1911 can wear out springs in 500-600 rounds and I'm there so no use in risking the gun on an $8.00 part.

    Was there any significant difference in length between the old spring and the new ones?

    tested Out the springs yesterday. No Failures etc thru 150 rounds!

    I have to stop thinking this is a range gun now and carry it for defense!

    It's soooooo hard cause it's soooooo sweeet!
