Thanks all, the "bottoming out" condition Jack Hammer mentioned was my concern. From a physics standpoint, two springs with the same wire diameter fully compressed so there is no space between the coils and two more coils on one than the other would be longer at full lock up. I was not sure if the 1911 had this extra space during recoil when you fire it.

Looks like others have successfully shot with a 32 coil aftermarket recoil spring so I will give it a go.

Thanks again.
