2 months to correct an entire inventory of out of spec product doesn't seem too bad. Since they are going to send you a replacement get some sandpaper, a file, dremel, etc. and modify that one to...

I questioned it at first but really like it now that I own it. Now I wonder why no one else ever offered it. I can understand if the OP doesn't like it but just throwing in my 2 cents.

Thomgetch is right. The mainspring influences the slide's ability to cock the hammer on recoil. I have never owned a .40S&W 1911 but have seen several people with 10mm/.40S&W dual caliber 1911s...
