Definitely need to upgrade spring and propably a flat EGW FPS stop if applicable. I'm new to 1911's so I have alot more reading to do. It has two jams in three magazines of my reloads. cases are getting smashed by slide before fully ejected. I Think its just the spring weights. I had the same effect on my glock 29 until i upgraded to 21 and 23 pound springs.
Congrats,.......check into Wolff gun springs, you need a 23#
Congratulations! I have the Kimber Eclipse Custom II in .45. It's a beautiful looking pistol. Just be careful when cleaning it. I inadvertantly got some bore cleaner on the black area at the front underside of the pistol which left an area of discoloration (an area of black lightened to a dark peat color). I don't want to make it worse so I haven't tried to bring it back to its original condition. I contacted Kimber regarding this issue but they never responded. This happened after I used the pistol for the first time. Since I have always kept my guns looking like new, the discoloration bothers me every time I use the Kimber. Like I said, I'm reluctant to mess with it and possibly make it worse. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
What a beauty, congrats!
Very nice, I want a Kimber Ultra Carry Custom so bad!
I am a little confused. 23# is standard weight for 10mm. It is a new gun so wouldn't it be at 23#?
The reason I asked is I own the same thing.
I'm almost positive Kimber uses a 18.5# spring in their's.
Colt's DE uses a 23
Probably don't use 18.5# but springs are so cheap next time I place an order to Brownell's I will add 23# and know for sure.
Just confirmed it with a very well know PistolSmith,
"Kimber ships the Eclipse with a 18.5# recoil spring, it's rather weak,
Would suggest trying a 22# spring. Try Wolff Gunsprings......."
Easy enough to fix. Most factory 10mm is loaded light. I up spring my 1911 in 45 so I will up spring my 1911 in 10mm.
Hey, the 23# spring is what the Delta Elite uses.
I did notice that a lot of 10mm fans seem to use 22-24 pound springs.
Guess it all depends on the loads you use.
This. Get a bunch of springs at different weights, just in case. Factory 10mm ammo is weak, while others reloaders can be hot.
