    From the original post:

    This became a recoil spring debate at the insistence of respondents, not by the question asked. To that end, what depth of firing pin primer strike warrants a firing pin spring replacement according to those not buying the "snake oil"? How does one suspect the mag. catch spring is getting a little long in the tooth? At failure?

    I replaced one at around 5,000 rounds, because it started to bounce brass off my head.

    I'll keep mine until the end

    My M1911A1 Springfield Armory .45s will go to the NRA when I die, along with four other handguns.
