Technical Information

Fits:
  • 1911 style pistols with 5" slides
    Notes:
  • Factory 1911 recoil springs are 16 pounds in 45 ACP, 14 pounds in 38 Super, 9mm Luger, 38 Special Midrange, Colt Ace 22 conversion kit, and 19 pounds in 40 S&W.
  • The Delta Elite 10mm uses a dual factory spring rated at 23 pounds. Single recoil springs require that the Delta Elite recoil spring guide be replaced with a standard 45 ACP recoil spring guide.
  • Recoil springs fit over a pistol's guide rod and control how the pistol's slide functions.
  • In general, heavy loads need heavy springs and lighter loads need lighter springs. There is no hard and fast rule as to how much "Spring" a pistol needs. Too light a spring and the pistol opens and closes early and hard, increasing the felt recoil and battering the frame. Too heavy a spring and the slide is hard to open and may not cycle completely, jamming the pistol.
  • Shooters who are using +P ammunition or self defense ammunition will likely need heavier recoil springs.
  • Shooters who are using target ammunition may be able to use lighter recoil springs.
  • Installation requires disassembly and reassembly of the pistol.
