Replace Kimber Slide Stop

1941 14
The Kimber slide stop on my Compact CDP was giving me fits. It had discolored badly and was popping up on a loaded mag.

I bought an Ed Brown slide stop to replace it. Unfortunately the slide stop notch on the Kimbers is too wide, and while the Ed Brown will lock the slide back on empty, the part of the stop that engages the notch is too narrow to allow a slingshot/overhand release of the slide -- it never touches the front of the slide stop notch. I have to use the slide stop to release the slide.

Can anyone recommend a stainless replacement stop that will work with the Kimber?

Wilson will cut a detent in a stainless slide stop for $10.00. It will match yor gun and solve your premature slide lock problem, at least it did in my stainless gold match. The only problem is it might take a few weeks to get it.
