Well here's a follow up. Went and found a Ed Brown firing pin stop today. The package is marked "manufactured to maximum tolerances...some handfitting maybe necessary".....it dropped straight into my slide.Originally posted by shane45-1911:
A fitted firing pin stop should be a mandatory spare part in your range bag.
George to be honest, I can't really tell. I don't see the tell tale injection marks that you typically see on a MIM part. It came out of a Blued Loaded modex (px9608) and it appears to be a blued part. FYI, the original part measured .466" wide. The Ed Brown measured about .468" wide. Not much difference.Originally posted by George Smith:
Vapors I have 2 questions
was it a mim part?
was it plated?
Right angles and square corners are very bad things????Originally posted by George Smith:
Could there be a lesson here somewhere?
George, is there any chance that you're going to be at AREA 1 this weekend as either a shooter or a vendor? If so, I could pick up a firing pin stop from you at the match.Originally posted by George Smith:
Firing pin stops crack at the inside square corner

My 26 year old Colt Gov't Model just did the same thing (you just can't get quality anymore, ha). I only have a couple of Gazillion rounds through it.
P.S. Teddy does GREAT work.
