I just got a new Colt XSE gov't, my first 1911. The mag release has a really strong spring, and I have to really press in the mag or hold down the mag release and insert the mag at the same time. Is this normal? Will it loosen up, or is there such thing as a lighter mag spring?
Also, the muzzle end of the barrel has a sharp edge around the inside end.
My HK has a smooth radius. I think this is called the crown? Is the sharp edge a normal 1911 design? thanks

It might break in...I would try that first......wolff springs sells lighter springs. I just had to order a heavier one for my Para. Neither of my 1911's have a rough edge around the crown, but I had them recrowned by a gunsmith.
