    spring tension? try leaving whatever amount of rounds you can. leave them for a couple of days

    they 'bre...

    Before we start a Hatfield/McCoy feud, let me tell you what my dislike of grease comes from.
    Think of grease as lapping compound without the grit. Throw in some powder residue, sand, dirt

    # 9 and give it a good scrubbing. Wipe the frame & slide down good and then apply a light coat
    of Mobil ...

    Your Springer is a Stainless Steel model, right?SS DOES NOT like grease! Any grease.A SS 1911

    Never touched a 1911 myself, but I know my Ruger MK II took 500-1000 rds to "wear it in". Had

    barrel, or onl...
