    I've been using Wolff springs and they're pretty good. I also have an ISMI recoil spring for a 1911 that my brother gave me and I haven't used it yet. I use Wolff on my 1911s and my wife's Taurus PT-92. I also use reduced power hammer spring for the Taurus and the 1911.

    They're available at Twin Pines and reasonably-priced.

    11 dollars ata isang ismi. wolf maybe 5-6 dollars.

    I have installed a 12.5 ismi recoil spring and has been shot around 18t rounds without any noticable wear.

    I have a hammer spring and a recoil spring. 15 and 12.5 pounds respectively for sale.

    Change my Wolff recoil and firing pin spring every 2,500 rounds (as per manufacturer's recommendation) on my 1911. Better to change springs worth P300.00+ than wreck something more expensive, IHMO.:)

    thats why chrome silicon springs are far better than normal spring material that wolf uses.

    the army tested chrome silicone springs since their requirement is about 300,000 cycles before they replace springs for their chain guns. They tested it for 1 million cycles and the spring was still within specs.

    I dont think i can shoot 1 million rounds on my pistol. Ismi recommends that you change springs every year no matter how many rounds you put downrange.

    I have dumped wolf like i dumped my beeper for a mobile phone. to each his own;)

    I treat gun springs like shock absorbers on vehicles. They need to be changed over a period of time. More often if the vehicle's service is severe (compared to shooting full-power loads).;) The ISMI recoil spring that I have is worth trying, though. I recall that there's an instruction on how to cut for proper length.

    Jason, does your ISMI recoil springs come with firing pin springs? Mine didn't come with firing pin springs.

    Just checked their website www.ismi-gunsprings.com. They offer springs only for 1911s, Glocks and AR type rifles.

    ISMI

    Certified Aerospace Specification Materials insure consistent mechanical properties of the bulk material. This means repeatability of performance in every production run.

    ISO 9002 Quality Control Standards are used to give the shooter springs that are dimensionally consistent.

    All Springs are Heat Treated, Shot Peened & Stress Relieved to enhance durability, consistency and reliability.

    Proprietary Design Features enhance the springs ability to hold the pistol in battery longer when fired to maximize energy dispersion and reduce sight movement.

    Maximum Service Temperature of our materials goes up to 700°F. Music wire has a maximum service temperature of 250°F and can be negatively affected at temperatures as low as 175°F. This is important because temperatures approaching or exceeding the maximum service temperature are highly detrimental to spring life. Exposure to maximum service temperatures promotes additional spring set and is detrimental to the relaxation of the spring. In other words, the spring will not decompress as rapidly.

    12 Month Replacement Warranty extends beyond just materials and workmanship. We even cover failure due to wear. Failure due to wear is not some arbitrary figure: if your ISMI 1911 Recoil Spring loses more than 0.375” of free length in 12 months it will be replaced at NO CHARGE (no shipping charge when sent by US Mail) regardless of the number of rounds fired.
