That was a good one
It comes with the territory. Never once saw a Master Gunnery Sergeant who wasn't in the middle of ruining some younger Marine's day, officers included.
I understand the Colts and the Swartz FPS but my question is for the customs. What does (for example) Wilson or Baer use? To broad? Model specific? I checked those two sites just going off the top of my head and neither site mentioned what was used.
Wilson, Baer, etc don’t use any stop per-say. The use of a strong firing pin spring and lightweight titanium firing pin accomplish a pretty drop safe solution.
I know few police departments allow 1911s...but I wonder if the FPS might not be required by some/most of those that do allow it. And it certainly might help sway a reluctant administrator...
Are the new 70 series competition models safe to dry fire eith the titanium firing pins?
Yep....no issues at all
Colt and Kimber are the only major 1911 manufacturers to use a firing pin safety.
S&W and Sig?
It really does not matter
All use a firing pin block akin to the series 80 fps, though not in all their pistols.
That's how we got 1911s. I think it was because of all the guns we issued or allowed they had FPS. SIG, Glock, Smith, HK, etc.
When my department allowed 1911s for on-duty carry they required models with FPS.
