    I just got done reading on sightm1911.com about cleaning and maintenace and there was mentioning of changing the recoil spring every ~2000 rounds, firing pin spring ever ~5000 rounds etc.

    These are just recommendations but should I really invest in springs for all of my semi autos? (ar15, mak90, pistols, auto-shotguns)?

    Thank you

    The only spring that I've had fail, over a 60 year period was a disconnector spring, in a J.C. Higgins (Sears) 22 rf rifle and 2 mag springs in 2 H&K 10 round (Clinton) 45ACP mags.

    IOW, I don't know, in answer to your question.
