Wilson flat-wire

Just want to verify that this is the correct item to order for my 4" Pro Carry II.

Flat-Wire Recoil Spring Kit | 4 Compact-http://shopwilsoncombat.com/

Thanks for confirming.

If your Pro Carry II is a .45 then yes that is the correct kit.

The small pin that comes in the kit isn’t something you need to use. I know I didn’t.

yesterday i just ordered the flat wound spring from Wolff directly for my PCII, didn't feel like i needed a kit, the little hex head i have that fits in the hole for takedown doesn't bother me that much. but it being a used gun, i figured i'd start with the recoil spring and trigger spring that comes with it and work from there. i have not fired the gun yet, will Friday when i get some time, but the current spring feels 'weak' and for $7 why not change it.

I'm not familiar with the Wolff flat wire recoil spring. What is the inside diameter of their springs? Wilson Combat offers kits that include guide rods with a smaller outside diameter because flat wire recoil springs have a smaller inside diameter and will not fit on a stock Kimber guide rod.

found out the part i ordered was NOT the flat wound spring but the normal round but XP at 20 pounds. It will fit the gun,but you still have that silly tool you need to use, so i bit the bullet and ordered the kit that the OP ordered. I got mine off ebay for the same price, w/o shipping cost and 4 day shipping. new holster came in last night, a little tight so i'm doing the patented double ziplock bag with a spray or two of boot stretcher inside the holster. wrap your gun in the 2 ziplocks and shove it in and let it sit for a couple of days and it will come out perfect. 2 sets of grips come in tomorrow, black with white punisher skull in black micarta and a set of rosewood with celtic crosses carved in relief, both should look sharp and can get away from the finger gripped goodyears that came with it. then saturday the Wilson kit, hopefully i'm done with that one after that. already has Trij night sights.

I got my flat-wire kit late last week. My carry pro is on the way back from Kimber, should be here Tuesday. So I have not had the opportunity to fit it.

That spring is pretty tough, hope I have the strength to install it.
