Looking for a basic 1911 recoil spring reference guide, to assist in providing a starting point.

Should reflect projectile material, weight, velocity, I would guess.

Anything out there?

Thanks

Here's one of several found online. Wilson Combat (http://blog.wilsoncombat.com/1911/a-guide-to-1911-recoil-springs-by-wilson-combat/).

Standard springs are:
16 lb recoil spring.
23 lb mainspring.
Std length firing pin spring.
