12lb Legion Spring Smoked after 2k rds

Recommended Posts

Anyone else get really short life from the 12lb spring that comes with the legion?

 

After 2k rounds and with a clean gun it doesn't have enough force to go into battery all the time. 

 

When shooting one handed it barely goes into battery.

I had issues with a Zev glock 34 that needed all Springs changed every 500 to 1k rounds.
Get some high quality 1911 springs next

What weight Wolff 1911 springs have people had good results with in the X5s?

It all depends on the ammo you use. Buy a multi pack and find out

12.5 for my 147 load and 14 for my 124 load (haven't tried a 13 yet, but not sure I'm going to bother since these work fine).

I’m nearing 5000 on mine without any issues, clean or dirty running the 12 lb spring and an optic. I do have a new spring on hand should I have any malfunctions.

I ran the initial 12# spring that came with my legion out to 11-12k with no issues.

Just my 2 cents how much does a spring cost vs a new slide. I may be over cautious but I swap mine out every 1000 rds

Thanks for the input, I already had a few more of the factory 12lb coming so I'll try those again and also ordered a couple 13lb variable Wolff to try.

1000rds.? Some of us would be changing 3 times a month or more. My .2 is that’s a bit excessive.
