    Springfield V16 - 45 ACP and 45 Super ???

    I purchased a used Springfield V16 - it’s a 1911 stainless ported long slide - it has “45 ACP” on the barrel - are all of the V16s also able to handle 45 Super, simply by switching the 45 ACP recoil spring out with a heavier spring to handle 45 Super?

    You probably should contact SA about that.

    Yep, already reached out to them - I couldn't find an email for their customer service, so I had to leave a voicemail.

    I sent the following in to Springfield:


    V-16 SN N437xxx and N419xxx and N413xxx - can these V-16s shoot .45 ACP and .45 Super with just a change of the recoil spring?

    They responded “Yes, that is correct”!
