    They deserve the extra protection!


    I recommend the Elite w/ the key chain carry method :)

    Thousands of workers have spent many years on the job site, without ever having an object fall on them. However, the prudent worker still wears a hardhat. :rofl:

    I have one of these - EVERY Springfield I have ever owned has a super strong plunger tube spring. I CANNOT get the slide stop in without using a screw driver flathead.

    On my custom shop springfield, I don't want to screw it up 1 day. So, I got this, and use it everytime for insurance.

    The slide stop on my Brown goes in super easily, though.

    Take a small file and put a small notch on the back of your slide stop where it engages the plunger, it will make pushing in the slide stop allot easier......Idiot Proof even.

    I am all for the capitalist economy so more power to the folks for putting these out for sale :) More 1911s and 1911s stuff the better I say.

    That being said I would just lose it if I had one so I will not be buying one but it is cheap insurance for sure.

    I keep it in my range bag in the package it came with - and yea, I don't want to scratch a $3k 1911, even once by accident...

    As for the file idea above - but gun is hard chromed - I don't want to start filing on the slide stop.

    Actually, there's a technique that makes it quite simple.

    a business card does the exact same thing and is cheaper, you've got at least 3 laying around somewhere near you right now.

    Well, the guy had JUST come out with them when I ordered mine - so he actually threw in several. So, I have quite a few. It wasn't expensive at all considering that.

    I used to use a piece of scotch tape. I've tried a card before, but it moves sometimes. Anyway, I like using it just on that 1 gun.

    You know it's kinda goofy, but just think of all those 1911's that could have been saved.

    Cripes, I'm a rookie and figured out the "secret" method in a couple of tries. Line it up a little below the plunger and press up and down at the same time. Shnick.
