Magazine Tube Spring

Post by 1911LVR » Tue Oct 30, 2018 2:24 am

I have a '71 Wingmaster with a 3-shell extension....total of 7 rounds. The magazine spring measures out at 23" and I heard this is below the minimum spec of 25". I do not use this for home defense.

The magazine still feeds with no issues. Should I go ahead and replace the spring or wait until I have an issue?

Thanx in advance!

If it’s not broken, don’t fix it.
