    Getting the MSH back on a bobtail is considerably more difficult -- I assume by the off-shape compared to a standard gun. Anyone have any tricks to get the MSH fully compressed so the MSH pin can be re-inserted. I managed but it was a b*tch Thanks

    Can’t find one, looking for a “blank slate” MSH for a project officers frame. Must be carbon steel, flat/smooth. Can be in the white, blued, whatever, it’s going to be blended to frame and serrated, finish doesn’t matter. Prefer to pay with pp or Venmo. ETA: would also be interested in a...

    So to date I thought that I was most comfortable shooting long triggers. However, if I have any issue it will typically push left. When I picked up the Dan Wesson A2 with the arched MSH and short trigger I realized that it was, out of the box, more consistently on target. When I went through...

    Have just acquired my second 1911, a Colt 1991A1. My first, about 20 years ago, was a SA 1911A1 GI model with the arched MSH. The Colt's is flat, which feels good, but I have fairly large hands, and the arched housing felt better in my hand, if memory serves. I don't really want to spend...

The thing that makes custom grips on target pistols solid and comfortable in part are the swells that accomodate the palm of your...

    Looking for a little advice from members here who have shot both types of Main Spring Housings. When I dry fire or at the range, I notice that when I present the pistol, I seem to be slightly muzzle high. Then have to dip the muzzle a bit to get on target. In your experiences, will an arched...

    Hey all, question to those with CCO's.... So, I recently picked up a DW CCO for concealed carry. LOVE the gun, and the frame height is perfect for concealed carry of a 1911, it's a bit larger than my G43, a bit taller, and heavier, and it's more accurate. With my large hands it feels good in...

    I have a full size steel ATI 1911 in 45 that I picked up really cheap for me to practice working on and shooting of course. I am looking for a one piece MSH magwell and extended thumb safety, hammer and grip safety to put on it. Anyone have anything they're not using? Included shipping with any...

    Just picked up an older blue Trophy Match in near new condition, looking for a flat, serrated MSH to replace the arched factory part. Let me know what you've got.
