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.
Yeah, but I read some reports the other night about another spring problem we might suffer with our glocks that could prove more detrimental than an occasional jam. First time I've heard of it, but it seems the trigger return spring can break prematurely leaving the gun virtually inoperable. There is a workaround to get it to fire, but I'd hate to have to have that much presense of mind under fire. I'll probably order a few spares with my next order and start changing them from time to time just to be safe. Thankfully, springs are cheap and available, as well as being upgradable in most cases.
