Description

EGW firing pin stops are wider than normal to prevent extractor from turning, which leads to more reliable ejection. Also, the firing pin stop is thicker to eliminate lateral movement. 

The inside corners are radiused to prevent cracking so the part lasts longer. The back corner has a .015 radius to break the corner but maintains a square edge to slow the slide opening. 

Simply stated, “It works!” To read reviews from our customers, click here or here.

Rockwell tested: 48 Rc scale; Available for all models of the 1911. This part is not drop-in. It is oversized, and must be fit, in order to provide the customer with the benefits stated above. 

Series 80 firing pin stops will work in Series 70 guns. 
Series 70 firing pin stops will only work in Series 70 guns.
We now offer caliber and series specific firing pin stops.

Cycles great!
I forgot add that after 500 rounds my gun still cycles without issue.

Best for fit and finish
I'll be honest my SA 1911a1 cycled perfectly fine in its stock condition. I am not a competition shooter and the only thing I battle is paper and steel every other couple of weeks. Fitment of the stock stop was extremely loose. Regardless, the firing pin stop never fell out during firing even with it being held in place only by the pressure of the firing pin spring.
For my Springfield 1911A1 parkerized mode fitting was minimal. All I had to do was file the left side (when looking at the stop installed in the slide). I filed it until fit was still tight requiring slight taping with a nylon head. I then burnished/hone for fine tuning to the point where hard thumb pressure needed to install and removal requires the tip of 223 and slight pressure. I also broke the lower edge to ease the force required when sliding the rack. All exposed metal was reblued.
For my situation this $20 part was the best upgrade for an already properly functioning 1911.
