Stiff magazine release - advice?


Recommended Posts

I clip them. You can go 1/2 a coil at a time to get where you want. Worse case, you got to buy a new spring, but I have never had to. Good luck

I have a 1911 with a stiff magazine release.  Should I order a reduced power spring or is it ok to clip coils?  If clipping coils is ok, how many is enough/too much?


Does the mag catch move freely in the frame without the spring installed or is this only an issue with the strength of the spring itself?
