1911 Sear Spring

The 1911 sear spring is one of those unconventional springs that you would never know was a spring unless someone like me told you. Nevertheless, it serves a very vital role in the operation of the 1911 pistol. In other words, no sear spring means no function.

The sear spring is a spring used in any firearm that utilizes a sear. To understand the purpose and function of the sear spring, however, one must understand the purpose and function of the sear. The sear is the component of a firearm that is designed to hold the hammer back. When enough force is applied to the trigger, the sear is manipulated in such a way that the hammer is released.

So what does the 1911 sear spring actually do? The 1911 sear spring is a three-pronged spring with a threefold purpose. Each prong is designed to exert pressure on the sear, the trigger and the grip safety. The prong that exerts pressure on the sear ensures constant pressure against the hammer. The prong that corresponds to the trigger forces it outward toward the finger. Finally, the prong corresponding to the grip safety forces it outward toward the palm. In the 1911, the sear spring is located in the grip of the pistol between the grip safety and the trigger. This newly manufactured part was manufactured to mil-spec 1911 specifications and features a black oxide finish. Note that a wide variety of the 1911 sear spring exists. Ours is designed specifically for mil-spec pistols.  

Spare parts are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly, especially all components that impact the firing sequence. In general, if a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement becomes necessary immediately – not only to keep a firearm functioning properly but also to ensure the safety of yourself and those around you.

It is also important to consider availability. At this time, Keepshooting.com is seeking to provide our customers with a wide selection of replacement parts for the M1911 pistol. Several parts are now readily available on our website at an affordable price. If you have any need for spare parts, now would be a good time to take advantage of this offering.

Repeated compression and decompression will weaken any spring and eventually lead to breakage. Basically, the more rounds put through your firearm, the greater the chance a spring will break. Make sure you are prepared by picking up a replacement 1911 sear spring today.
