Who has installed the square bottom hand fit firing pin stops on your 1911 and what was your experience thoughts on the mod? I feel like for shooting +p and into 45 super this is the weak link in Mt setup.
I run and prefere the small radius stop on all mine. As I understand it is the original design used by JMB. By working lower on the hammer it slows the barrel coming out of battery and the slide speed because you can and should run a slightly softer spring in the slide. This increases dwell time over the magazine for better pick-up of the next round. Now because your no longer over sprung the slide doesn't hammer back into battery jerking the nose down. I often have the holes touching when doing double taps.Who has installed the square bottom hand fit firing pin stops on your 1911 and what was your experience thoughts on the mod?

Excellent that is the improvement I'm "shooting" for..Might be a touch lighter, but I think it's just different how the push ramps up.
My current favorite 1911 is a tweaked up Ruger Commander. Has a small rad stop and a 16# spring. I have also played with a 14# and it's not quite enough. With that said it will run anything you put thru it from powder puff to defense. It feeds from any of my mags from ACT to Wilson's, even some $6 mil surp gun show ones after I worked there lips.
There is a sweet spot...If the ramp angle, etc. is right and you get the springs right it will feed about anything and you get fast follow up shots because you never come off target.
