    I know the ILS mainspring setup is different from standard and have read that the trigger pull will improve with changing it out to a standard weight and setup. For the TRP that did not come with the ILS, will it be a standard setup or their modified one? Anyone know? Wanted to ask rather than...

    I know that the standard mainspring for Government and Commander 45 acp is 23 lb. My question is: Is the 23 lb standard for 38 Superb and 9x23 Winchester as well. I ask this due to the brass flying at almost lethal velocity in my 1911s with the smaller caliber. I have read many comments on...

    I'm working on a new build and am hung up on assembly. When I get the mainspring housing pinned and engage the action, I drop in the thumb safety. After that, I can’t get the hammer to return, the trigger is completely locked out. If I just take the thumb safety out and let the grip safety...

    Just curious to see if any of you are running less than the original 23 pound mainspring in your 1911. What made you choose to swap out the original, and why? How light have you gone?

    . . . . put a dab of blue loctite on the screw holding the bottom of an Ed Brown magwell / mainspring housing to keep it tight? It seems like that little screw backed out quite a bit after my first range trip with ZOIDS1911. I didn't notice it until today when I got it out of the case and...

    The first thing I do with a new 1911 is replace the flat mainspring housing. One blued and one stainless mainspring housing for sale. Both are Colt, both are checkered, and are in brand new condition as removed from their respective pistols. I will sell each one for $40 delivered CONUS or $72...

    I find myself changing some thought on a build idea I had been planning for a long time. With that being said, I have a very rare and nearly impossible part that I am selling. I have a Novak "The Answer" mainspring housing/grip safety insert. I had it listed before and removed it. I do plan on...

    I've seen numerous posts where people have asked about or said they were going to use an ILS specified reduced power mainfpring in their Springfield. But there was little to no follow through with results. Just wondering if anyone has some follow up info regarding these springs. Reduced trigger...

    I had a magwell on this Springfield 3" but the screw stripped. I'd like to either get another screw so I can put the magwell back on or return the gun to stock. What screw does this take and what would it take to get it back to stock? What's missing? Thank you!

    Greetings Addicts, I found these two boxes of once fired .35 Rem brass in some of my father's old shooting stuff. I will never get around to reloading, and I thought some of you hunters out west who are set up to reload might like a few extra brass cases. I am in need of another arched...

    Addicts, Question: Does a bobtail mainspring use a standard government / commander sized spring, or something smaller. Reason I ask is because I was told I needed an Officers size mainspring and a search of Brownells and EGW came up empty. I couldn't find a single mainspring listed as...
