Replacement Magazine Springs
 
I recently purchased the Rock Island Armory M1911-A1 Tactical II 9mm. It came with the Mec-Gar 10 round magazine. I've been having trouble with the first 3 rounds jamming nose first in to the feed ramp. If I only load 7 rounds it works perfectly. I think I need an extra power mag spring to solve the problem but I haven't been able to find any. I've tried Wolff and Mec-Gar as well as a few other spring manufactures but they don't make extra power springs for the 10 round 9mm Mec-Gar mags. Has anyone found a spring that works with the Mec-Gar mags ? Thanks in advance.

Think you are searching for the wrong thing.

All you want is a spring for any 1911 style magazine with 10 round capacity. Found it in like 5 seconds at MidwayUSA.

Now I would also offer that you should consider trying a different follower if the new springs don't work. Followers can affect capacity, the spring collapse I mentioned in an earlier post, and most importantly nose angle.

Another good resource is https://gunmagwarehouse.com/all-maga...uger--10-round. Especially if you want to try out different brands. Most 1911 owners build inventories of different brands to suit their pistols. No idea why they are so problematic - but only a few (Wilson, CMC) will always work in any platform. But then you pay for that.
