I've been shooting the handguns, preparing for qualifications later this month. I normally qualify on three or four different handguns, depending on how long the examiner will let me stay on the range. This morning I noticed that a couple of my 1911 magazines seemed to have weak springs. The slide wasn't locking back on an empty magazine. I keep a couple of Wilson replacement springs and followers in my parts bin, so I took them out and replaced the springs after I cleaned the pistols.
Now, my magazines work. The next time I make an order, I'll have to stock up on springs. It's an easy fix and makes the pistol run like it should. There is very seldom anything wrong with a magazine body. Springs are a cheap fix.
