Not unless you plan on feeding it a steady diet of + P. What is your primary use for it?

The factory spring is 16 # on a full sized 1911. Are you planning on shooting some target ammo ? If not, get that spring out of there as you will hammer the frame pretty good and cause a possible timing problem.

If you feel the spring needs to be replaced, Wolff has a 16 # varible power spring that will work very well.

In fact, I replaced mine with a 18lb spring. So far there has been no problems with either light loads nor heavy loads. Even on my Gold Cup, it came with , I believe a 12 lb spring for light target loads, first thing I did was put a heavier spring in.

Ill second the 16# variable springs. Excellent springs for std ,45 ACP ammo pressures.
