Recoil springs for Colt 1911 series pistols are available in both
conventional and variable power designs. Please refer to our FAQ section for
information on conventional vs. variable design. Each Wolff recoil spring for
Colt pistols includes an extra power firing pin spring. Recoil Calibration Paks
are available offering a range of spring weights to tune your pistols recoil
function. All springs are produced from Wolff proprietary HTCS spring material
except as noted.
The 3 most popular 1911 recoil springs are also available in chrome silicone
material. While chrome silicone is an excellent material, it is a softer
material and does not offer the tensile strength of our proprietary HTCS spring
material (the material from which most of our springs are produced from). We now
offer these springs due to customer requests.
