  1. Is the flat wire spring compatible with a full length guide rod? Yes-Only with the full length flat wire guide rod (#25GRFW). The inner diameter of the flat wire spring is smaller than a conventional round wire spring requiring a flat wire specific guide rod.
  2. Is a Shok Buff required? A Shok-Buff is optional on the 5” flatwire guide rod. It is not recommended for use on the 4” kit since it can reduce slide travel
  3. Can I shoot +P ammunition with this kit? Yes-since flat wire springs don’t lose their length over time like round wire springs they cushion your frame more effectively over time. Flat wire springs also compress in a more linear fashion which makes them more tolerant of a wider variety of loads and grips.


"I have this 17 lb flat wire recoil spring along with full length flat wire recoil rod in all my 1911 pistols"

"It was time for me to replace my recoil spring for my 1911 and since I have replaced several other parts in my pistol with with Wilson parts this was an easy choice and the Flat Wire Recoil Spring works great every time"

"Went to the range today and tried out my new Wilson Flat-Wire Recoil Spring with a couple of boxes of bullets. As with all Wilson products that I have bought in the past, Im am completely satisfied that I have purchased only top of the line parts for my 1911."
