Kimber ultra carry II

I have a Kimber ultra carry II I was told I need to replace the rocoil spring about every 300 rounds to avoid cracking the frame or something like that? Is that true or is someone peeing on my leg and telling me it's raining? If I have to replace the spring is there a better spring I can buy that will last longer?

You know you would only have to change the recoil spring in a GLOCK every 3k-7k rounds (depending on the model) and if the spring fails the worst case scenario is the pistol fails to lock into battery. They also eat all types of ammo.

Sorry, guys. I couldn't resist.
I hate to hijack the thread guys but I need to address the GLOCK trigger spring concern. The GLOCK is the only handgun that can fire WITHOUT the trigger spring. It does require that you've been practicing your trigger control though. When the trigger is released after firing you can let it out just enough for it to reset and then fire again. This can occur with the trigger spring REMOVED from the weapon. Don't believe me? Go home and try it. Take out the trigger spring and dry fire it a few times. Remember, release the trigger just enough for it to reset.

As long as you do your part, a broken trigger spring will not take you out of the fight.

Again, sorry for hijacking the thread.
