I don't know a lot about the American Classic line. I seem to recall that they seem to be pretty well regarded.
As for the spring, I'd normally say "Check your owner's manual." However, having taken a look at at it, I didn't see mention of it. IIRC, the short barrel models should be swapped every 2000 rds, or when noticeably shorter than a new one, whichever occurs first. Changing out a $6-$8 spring every so often isn't really a big deal.

The Amigos had some issues early on that we're similar to the issues the Commander had when it first came out, ie the first round nose diving into the frame, won't feed with a full mag, mag catch problems. I don't know if these problems have been cleared up yet.

Unfortunately, it's nearly impossible to find out a manufacture date based on serial number to check when a gun was produced. I attempted to start a thread at the American Classic forum with serial numbers of guns like mine that had problems because we were being told the problems were specific to a "batch". The thread disappeared and I was promptly banned from the forum, not that I'm bitter about that. Basically it's a crap shoot with the commander and officer size American Classic guns.

Does the gun function perfectly? If so why change out the springs. If not maybe. Could be lots of things that need to be fixed before springs. If it ain't broke don't fix it.
