Keeping a fresh recoil spring in your pistol will dramatically reduce the pounding your slide and frame receive.

Cautions and Installation Test Procedure

HOW TO TEST TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE CORRECT RECOIL SPRING WEIGHT FOR YOUR AMMUNITION:  Go to the range with your pistol and a magazine that will positively lock your slide to the rear when you slowly retract the slide with the pistol empty. Load one round of the desired ammunition in the proven magazine, load the pistol and fire the single shot holding the pistol in your strong hand, but grip the pistol fairly loose. If the pistol consistently (5 to 10 shots is adequate) locks the slide to the rear, the recoil spring is not too heavy for your ammunition. A recoil spring that is 1-2# below the weight where you begin to have failures to lock open is ideal for your ammunition.

Another Great Product from Wilson Combat
I just received 3 full-size 1911 recoil springs 12#, 13#, & 15#. Their springs are of excellent quality, and delivery was very fast. My first purchase of Wilson Combat products was 1911 magazines. These magazines are unbeatable - wouldnt be caught dead without them. Never a single jam in several thousand rounds.
