View Full Version : Ciener magazine spring life and replacement?

03-06-2009, 8:41 AM
I got some 10 round 1911 .22LR magazines from Midway and was wondering how long I could expect the magazine springs to last before they need replacement. After maybe 100 rounds through one of them, I already had to pull it and stretch it to get it to feed right.

Where is the best place to get replacement springs?

Any experience with how long the springs last?

I have a Ciener conversion kit for 1911 that I bought 6 years ago. I think I've put around 300 rounds thru it spread over 2 magazines (so ~150rnd each). As far as I remember, both of my mags worked fine. Maybe call Ciener and buy parts (probably they'll just send you free) ?
