    hi
    Just a quick question.

    How many rds before changing a firing pin spring in 5" 1911's?
    I have been in a discussion with a few guys and I say about 5000 rds and most others are saying 10 to 15000?:wavey:
    thanks

    FP springs are cheap and easy to change. Wolff includes a FP spring packaged with their recoil springs. Change them both at the same time and you never have to worry about it.

    Exactly. I change my recoil spring and firing pin return spring every 5,000 rounds.
