Colt .45 ACP MKIV, Series '70, FTF
My 1911 Series 70 started to fail to drop the hammer after I pulled the trigger. When I released the grip safety and reapplied it, it would fire. This happened four times with five different magazines. I field stripped it and Gun Scrubbed the heck out of it, re-lubricated it. Fired four magazines flawlessly. However, a source tells me it is definitely an indication that I need a new mainspring and shouldn't be carried until it's installed. I sure would appreciate some input from board members. I've owned the gun since 1973 and only replaced an extractor once. Thanks!
