Default M1911 colt recoil spring

Hi guys, I need some information about this damn spring (the wire diameter, the sprig outer diameter,the free length and the number of coils) and if any body knows the stiffness of it by(kg/cm) I'll be thanksful because in my country I couldn't find a new one so I intend to mdify an ordinary commercial spring and fit it in the gun.
by the way would you please tell me about your opinion about that idea.

Go to Wolff Spings web site, they will have all the info and all the springs you need. They have a great reputation for their products and service.

You'll need to decide if you want a factory strength or stronger or weaker recoil spring. Wolfe is the best. But they make many strengths !
