No it's not necessary to change all the springs when the recoil spring is ready to be replaced. I put together a spring replacement chart for the different models.It also made me wonder if I should replace all the springs in my two PCII when I change out the recoil spring.?? Any thoughts/advise??
That's what I was wondering.I have two PCII one in 9mm the other a 45 stainless and both are the 4inch model.I have a couple thousand rounds on both.I guess it's time to call and order a couple recoil springs.Thanks Chuck43 for the info.Why change the recoil spring at 800 rounds for the compact and Pro?
I don't know where you searched but the numbers I quoted are published in the owners manual Kimber sends out with every new 1911 they make.I just did a quick search on the subject. The numbers are all over the place. Some recommend 600 and others 2000, so I guess it becomes a preference thing. Springs are cheap and fairly easy to change.
Just did a google for changing recoil springs in a 1911. Wasn't doubting the mothership, just looking to see what others recommended. There's info at Wilson Combat's site as well as Wolff springs among others. Most have different numbers. The chart you posted is directly from Kimber and should probably be made a sticky here as such.I don't know where you searched but the numbers I quoted are published in the owners manual Kimber sends out with every new 1911 they make.
