    Thanks, that makes sense. I realize it is called a recoil spring for a reason yet it seems that 1911 folks are forever playing around with them. It seems odd that when you buy a new 1911 model the manufacturer doesn't have a spec sheet for springs, etc. that show the range of FPS (pressures) that they will work with. Then there are extractor springs of different strengths to worry about.

    I guess when your gun is not cycling you have to change the recoil spring unless something else is goofing up the timing.
