Looking to order a couple more of the NRM Colts (GM and Commander), but want a steel MSH. Do the current ones come with one? The ones I just received a week ago (came from RSR) have plastic MSH.

Thanks,
Steve

I believe the new ones are plastic. There are a bunch of different choices of steel MSH's out there and it's an inexpensive replacement part.

It is just a matter of taste. The main issue with me and plastic mainspring housings is that I don't like plastic mainspring housings. The reason is not because they are not durable enough. They very well may be. I just believe the gun was designed with a steel msh and should continue to come with one. If I wanted a plastic gun, I would have bought some Combat Tupperware (i.e. Glock). And if you want a lanyard loop, you almost certainly have to go the steel msh route. Again...good news is it is an easy and inexpensive part to replace.
