    Springfield 1911 A1 main Spring change

    Hi All
    I got my Springfield 1911 A1 back from cerakote so I thought it would be a good time to change out all the springs . I ordered a Wolff spring kit Standard colt 1911 A1 kit , when I was putting it back together all went well untill I put in the new main spring which was about an 1'' longer than the old one but after install there was so much pressure on the hammer I couldnt cock it and after several tear down and look see's it wouldnt work . I put the old spring back in and it works fine , anyone else run into this problem?

    If you are going to use a standard mainspring, you have to drop the ILS parts, you need a standard #26 MAIN SPRING CAP, #30 MAIN SPRING HOUSING PIN RETAINER. Or, order a mainspring for the Springfield with the ILS.

    ETA: You'll need a : MAIN SPRING CAP PIN too. #27
