S-12 recoil springs?

Recommended Posts

you can use 1911 springs.....


1911 springs, really? No reliability concerns?

No issues, but you're going to need to know what weight you want to use. The 1911 springs are rated through a very large range from 3 or 4 lbs all the way to 28 lbs or more (and every lb between those).


Go to one of the vendors TonyRumore suggested. Those are proven parts...

That's part of the beauty of using 1911 springs. Undergassed gun? Less spring. Overgassed gun? More spring.


It's not a substitute for having a properly tuned gas system in the first place, but playing with spring rates can be a very effective band-aid.
