Question for Iowegan

Will a Commander sized recoil spring guide work without issue in a full size 1911? Visually, the only difference I can see is about 3/8" in length, and it hand cycles fine.

Thanks,

Scatter .... Yes the shorter guide will work but it's purpose is to keep the recoil spring from kinking. It's always best to use the full sized spring guide and spring cap.
