I got some 10 round 1911 .22LR magazines from Midway and was wondering how long I could expect the magazine springs to last before they need replacement. After maybe 100 rounds through one of them, I already had to pull it and stretch it to get it to feed right.

Where is the best place to get replacement springs?

Ciener sucks in terms of customer support.

Maybe you can contact Wolffe springs and see if they have anything that would fit the magazines.

Any experience with how long the springs last?

I bought some Cieners used to use with my Marvel. They have been great for me, I'd guess several thousand rounds.
They are easy to take down and clean. My guess is you have a burr or some grit in the spring well.
