"Wow, this is a heavy spring. Works great, gives your slide that \"lil\" extra push. Slick idea to make the spring out of square stock. Very uniformed compression. Mine came with two spring buffers."

"I baught one of these a couple weeks ago. Can you say \"spring bind\"? These are about 3/4 inches longer than stock uninstalled. They are about three coils too long at full compression. The return over powers the slide stop. You better have a hot mag spring if you want a round in the chamber before the slide falls. Oh yeah, don't buy one unless you really have something against your lugs because your going to shear them right off after a short time pounding them with this spring."

"I dropped this Square spring into my S&W 1911. First of all, I've got a nice stainless guide rod. This spring fit down easily, replaced the circular wired spring, and was noticeably harder to keep down when replacing the bushing. However, after working the slide action a few times - it seems even and tight. That was the whole point. I'll have to report again after I hit the range. This gun hasn't misfed on me yet, so a range test will be the final determination."

"I installed this spring in a Springfield Govt. 1911, it was almost an inch longer than the stock spring. It was very hard to pull back the slide, it was very rough, and stopped almost 3/4 of an inch before reaching the slide stop."

"This spring will not work in a Government 1911 without modification. You can't cycle the slide all the way back."

"I'm very disappointed with this spring. It's way too long to fit. I tried to trim it down, but even with cutting off a few of the coils, I was still unable to get the slide to lock. This product is a \"misfire\"."

"Don't bother. it took quite a while just to get the spring into my 1911, and like others said, you cannot get the slide to lock. it does work, as far as it will fire, i'll say that much, but if it won't let the slide lock, I will not leave it in my weapon."
