1911 ramped barrels and full length guide rods

Hey guys I'm a Springfield nut like most of you and came into a pickle on two of my 1911s. Both in question are lightweight 5" pistols with full length guide rods and ramped barrels unlike the range officer I have which is a standard non ramped. Two questions for you.

1. Which barrel is the correct ramp for these pistols the .45 c/p or .45 w/n? Any preference in brand would help I see kart and nowlin but any others are welcome. Possibly even threading one for a suppressor.

2. Can theses lightweight pistols be run with a standard GI plug and recoil spring?I brought this issue up since I prefer the good old fashioned plug set up.

I'm not biased towards any brands so please speak your mind on this issue!

I am a little confused as to what you are asking. Are you going to try and replace your non ramped barrel with a ramped barrel? If so you know the frame will need to be machined correct? When machining the frame it can be machined for either style ramp. All of my ramped barrels are Clark/Para but, that doesn't mean anything except the frame and barrel have the same cut (female and male respectively).


Here is a link to be able to tell what ramp style you currently have.

That site was the picture I needed. Springfield uses a ramped barrels at least on both my lightweights but I want to replace both with something a little nicer and more accurate. I'll post a pic later but this site link has everything I need!

The answer is you take your existing barrel out and look at what you have.
And if you don't already know what you have and you should, then you haven't cleaned it and you should clean it. Then you will know if your barrel is ramped or not.

My Springfield loaded model does not have a ramped barrel.
