Post by KBarth on 6/10/2017, 4:59 pm

Does anyone know where I can get a 19lb mainspring for a officer model 1911?  Ive looked and I can only find 20lb mainsprings
Thanks in advance

Just an opinion. The 20lb in the officer is like going down to an 18 in a regular 1911. I would just try the 20. That's 3 lbs under what is in there now.

So is there a spring that would be equivalent to 19lbs?  21?

Sounds like you have it covered. I know you plan on using it for your lower. Now you know why I have so many mainsprings. Laughing
