Looking good! Let us know how she runs when you get time to put the mods through their paces.
I just got the new prodigy slide stop from EGW and it’s definitely not a drop-in part as advertised. It’s too big! I got it in there but it’s so tight it’s not letting the barrel unlock! It needs some fitting for sure.Also for wider slide stops EGW just came out with one also but might require some more fitting since their pin diameter is spec’d at .200. I went with the Atlas because theirs is spec’d at .199 which figure would drop in but on my gun it still needed some fitting to make it work. Interestingly I have an older Staccato that has a .201 pin and a newer one that has a .199 pin. I just ordered one from Dawson that I‘m going to put on a BUL SAS II Ultralight 3.25” so hopefully it’s .199 so I don’t have to mess with it. If it’s .199 it would probably just drop in on the Prodigy. 10-8 also has a slide stop which is the same shape as the Staccato but they spec their pin at .200. Those are the only ones I know of that have a slightly wider ledge and still look like a standard slide stop. I’m not big on how some of these extended slide stops look.
My 10-8 i just bought used dropped in with no issues. The SS had no marks on it prior to installing.
Probably so as none of the 10-8s ive ever owned fit in any baers ive ever owned. Wont even go in the hole.I'm guessing that has more to do with the variation in how each barrel is fitted by Springfield.

My very early release 4.25" Prodigy is 100% good to go with the 10-8 Slide Stop without any fitment or function issues. The hammer, ambi-safety, trigger, grip safety, mag release, disconnector, extractor, and overall fitment has been excellent thus far, as I guess I was one of the "luck one's" with my 1911DS. Fortunate to be a little over 3,000rds w/o problems or modifications except for a short break-in period w/ a 12lbs spring from Wilson Combat and now back to the 9lbs spring. I did a very thorough break-in of the 17 and 20 round mags prior to their use, and I've only installed the Springfield optic mounting plate for a HS407co and a TLR-1 HL. If I start to have any internal issues, I'll look at the stuff from Atlas and others that have 4.25" specific gear. Waiting to see if 10-8 or Dawson will release a one-piece or tool-less guide rod for the 4.25" Prodigy. This is a very nice shooter for the price and for my use on the range and in the field.My 10-8 i just bought used dropped in with no issues. The SS had no marks on it prior to installing.
That's great. Need Hilton to get more in stock. Need one for my 5". He emailed back saying he had no ETA.My 4.25" Prodigy is 100% good to go with the 10-8 Slide Stop without any fitment or function issues.
Thanks for sharing. Had some light strikes on my 5” so will have to try that out to see if it improvesRan the first 200 rounds yesterday. Federal 115gr white box FMJ Training Ammo. Zero malfunctions. Brass ejection was consistent and where it’s supposed to be. Recoil impulse was smooth and shot fairly flat. I’m going to try an 11lb recoil spring once I get 1,000 rounds though it. 12lbs at least for me still feels a little bit snappy when going back into battery. I am using Staccato magazines since I have plenty of those laying around. Basically to summarize, the stock recoil spring is 12lbs so that didn’t change. I changed the hammer spring to 20lbs and to avoid light primer strIke’s I changed the factory super extra power firing pin spring to a regular XP firing pin spring. Atlas slide stop required minor firing and re-used the stock ambi safety which also required some fitting to work properly with the Extreme Engineering Tactical II hammer, Tactical Sear, and disconnector. And also used the Dawson Tool less guide rod’s for Springfields.
So for this particular Prodigy, Springfield did a very nice job at the factory. I’ve got a 4.25” that I’m going to do the same mods to and hopefully I’ll get that knocked out in a couple of weeks and see if that one is as good as the 5” one I just shot.
