Spring loaded as in AFTEC? If so, they are worth their weight in gold. HIGHLY recommended.

You probably wont find anything but AFTEC's in the top 50 at the US Nationals. 'Cept for maybe a Glock or two.

I bought an Aftec to correct a feeding /extraction problem with a Kimber. It fixed the problem and works great. Don't know if I would buy it again unless I had a similar problem or was a serious IPSC shooter (thousands of rounds a month).

Same experience as Howardk. I love my Aftec. That, and my Lee Factory Crimp Die. Best two discoveries I've made since I bought my first 1911 about 3 years ago.

Spring changing

Tom- how often do the springs have to be changed in the Aftec? And is that a difficult job? Thanks, WB
