MSH internals

Wanting to install a Magwell in my SA MC Operator. I have found multiple threads talking about the replacement of the ILS inside of the stock MSH, but cannot find if I can keep it and reinstall stock internals into new MSH? Wanting to keep springs as stock as possible. Thanks!

Do yourself a favor and buy a new mainspring. I don't think you can use the old parts from the ILS MSH.

I have the same pistol. The parts are interchangeable but missing the main spring retaining pin. I would just buy new parts anyway. They aren't expensive. Make sure you put a rubberband on grip safety when you remove housing or your sear spring might fall out.

I looked at that the other day. Still learning the 1911 platform and starting to see they can be temperamental. Didn't know if one was more "reliable" than the others.

I thought the ones with ILS (don't know if operator does) had a different plunger and a shorter spring, I'd check.

that is correct. You have to get a standard mainspring and plunger. 23lbs is standard for a 5 " gun, but you can go lighter. I use 18 lb springs in mine. You also might want to make sure you have a steel firing pin in the gun or you could get light strikes.

Yea everything I have looked at points to the MC as having the ILS installed, but it doesn't have the actual area on the MSH to lock it. Guess I could just order new kit to be safe..
