I wouldn't know, I never changed the recoil spring on my M1A, of course I've only been shooting it for 35 years.
Your missing the point. My 114 year old Krag and my 94 year old P17 don't have recoil springs to replace so nobody has ever changed one out.
So while the M1A is most certainly a reliable rifle. Bolts are more reliable.
