1911 Springfield hand gun


Full Access Member
The 1911 I have jams after the first 100 or so rounds go through it. I believe it is because of the damage to the return spring. One end of it is damaged and I think that is the fault point. I just need to get off my duff and look for a replacement spring and order it.

Try getting one directly from Colt.

After 100 rounds of 230 grain 45 acp you might be limp wresting. That would cause a fail to extract. Wolff springs are great people to deal with.

The nice thing about 1911's is that once you identify what the problem part is, you have about 100 different options to choose from to replace it. Having a good smith is invaluable, too.

That's right - take it to a good gunsmith.
