Kimber Pro Carry II Springs

I bought a used Kimber Pro Carry II from Gander Mountain before they closed. The pistol didn't look like there had many rounds through it but not knowing I decided to replace the extractor spring, purchased a Wolff Spring. My question is would you replace the Firing Pin Spring at the same time? Thanks for your help.

I'm not certain the cost of a new firing pin spring but for the few dollars it probably costs I think it would be a no brainer maintenance. Then you "know" exactly what you have!

Firing pin springs have a service life of 5000 rounds, most people will never wear them out. As Arland and JC have said springs are cheap and worth the peace of mind.
