Ok, So as you all know, I am a noob to 1911's. I have a hinker for a springer loaded. I know the two piece guide rod "may" come unscrewed while shooting. I also heard that it is a pita to assemble/disassemble a 1911 with a full length guide rod. So here is my question. What do I need other than a GI guide rod? What size spring do I need? Can the one that comes with the springer fit with the GI style guide rod? Do I need any other parts to convert the FLGR to a GI style? Thanks all! capt Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
