I don't think anyone has ever made a 1911 with a barrel shorter than 3-1/2" that uses a conventional, single recoil spring. The Colt Officers ACP (3-1/2" barrel) used a pair of nested recoil springs....

They have them for the P14.45, P13.45, P16.40, and P18.9. That doesn't cover the P10.45 (Warthog), P12.45, P15.40, P14.40, or P12.9. They missed more models than they hit.
