This is a modification I do on just about all slide stops as it allows easy installation and doesn't affect function. It is easily done with a needle file. To install, the slide stop is positioned directly on top of the plunger and you can feel it saddle over it and push it straight in. Bingo!



Here's a picture of it in place and ready to push straight in.

I did this tonight and it does indeed work. Proud of myself. My first 'smiffin project.

This is an AWESOME modification! I wish I had done this earlier! It would have saved me much stress and frustration with my 1911.

Thank you Log Man!

Thanks Log. Been using your idea for a few years now on all my 1911 builds.

Perfect! I was just doing a little filing trying to get my slide stop to fit better last night. I'm on my first build so I didn't take too much off out of fear of effing things up so it ended up better but still nowhere near as easy to insert as my other 1911's. I'll give this a try right away.
