Organizer for 1911 recoil springs

Post by NuJudge on 2/11/2017, 2:12 pm

Wilson and Midway used to have these.  Wolff may have had them at some point.  Does anyone know where I could find one now?  I have two 1911 pistols, one that will probably just use 10 pound recoil springs, but the other is likely to use a variety on either side of 16 pounds.

I have a bunch of them. I made a cheepo scale I use to separate. When I get a known new spring I check to see how close its calibrated. Calibrated might be the wrong word but I always know how any given spring compares to a known poundage. I also put shoe tags on the ones with known weights. Or leave them in the package they came in.

Not sure if this is what you're thinking of exactly, but... http://shopwilsoncombat.com/Spring-Caddy/productinfo/364/
