cco recoil spring

I have a DW cco and was wondering if anybody tried the flat wire recoil spring that Wilson Combat has, seems like conventional recoil springs don't last too long.

I have them in both my cco 45 and my cco 40. The 45 is using an EGW full length guide rod. The 40 is using Wilsons commander fw gi guide rod. I also have the gi setup in my Guardian.

I bought the Wilson Combat flat wire spring and commander flat wire guide rod for my .45 Valkyrie.. I put them in and when I cycle the slide it feels very crunchy. I also tried it in my Vbob and same thing happens, idk why it is happening but the spring rubs the inside of the slide to the point where it has removed the paint on the spring and has scuffed the barrel.. I didn't like the crunchy feel so I just went back to the standard spring and guide rod.

Some time ago I asked Wilson combat if they were going to have a flat wire spring for the 4.25 (commander length) pistols.
Their reply was "No"!
You must be using their springs for the 5" or 4" barrel guns.

I asked a Wilson rep here on the forum if the 4 inch flatwire springs will work in the 4.25 inch slides and he said yes.

I have a PMC 9 and am looking to install a flat wire spring. DW CS informed me that I need a 12 lb spring but the closest I can find is a 14 lb spring. Does anyone know how that would work? Would putting a 14 lb spring cause an issue?
