I puchased a Sig Scorpion 5 " 1911 a few months ago and i now have a question about the guide rod. I noticed during cleaning that the guide rod is a two piece rod and it starts to unscrew during shooting. Its never unscrewed all the way but i am concerned that if it did that it would jam up the pistol pretty good. Is this normal to have a two piece guide rod and is it normal for it to unscrew during firing? Also, can I replace the recoil spring with a heavier one? It has the factory spring and it seems like the recoil is stronger on my Sig than on my brothers RIA. Granted he has had alot of work done to his RIA but would a heavier spring help? Thanks for any help..... Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
