Can't argue with that statement and did not have enough experience with the 1911 10mm to argue with him on what # spring was needed, I just knew that the spring it came with was not enough.

This is my first 1911 10mm, and my third 10mml, the other two are S&W 1006. So I'm still learning about the 1911 10mm. The 1006 is a tank and can handle HOT loads and never needed tweaking, both ran 100% out the box!

So, the consensus I am seeing is that it should be around 20lbs spring minimum? If so, I'll buy a heavier spring.
