    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?

    Here's one of several found online. Wilson Combat.

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

    The Wolff website sells OEM weight springs; they're my reference.

    Edit: Oops....saw your response JTQ as I click the button.
