jasonub, mco and i use the squared egw fp stop. it slows down the slide at recoil for a softer recoil feel.

pag minor guns, dapat rounded yung fp stop otherwise mag stove pipe lang

Yes, I installed the EGW oversized FPS on several on all my Series 70 1911s - a Norinco, an Armscor HiCap and a Colt. I've got a couple more Series 80 1911s that I have to install it on when I have the time.

And yes, while it does not reduce the actual recoil energy, there is a perceptible reduction in felt recoil.

I would say this is the best $20 I ever spent on a 1911. I ordered the part already radiused from George of EGW so I didn't have to do it and screw up. You do have to call in to get the radiused part since he doesn't have it listed on his website. Even with that, the part is oversized so you still have to do some filing work to fit it in.

And if you screw up, it's just $20.

In other words, effective talaga. Hindi naman nabubugbog ang hammer? How does it affect the longevity of the pistol?

For cal.40 1911, whats the most effective combination w/ regards to recoil spring and hammer spring weights?

Where in manila are egw fp stops available?

In my P16, i tried several recoil spring weights and ended up with 12.5lbs. Main spring or hammer spring, i use 19lbs.

Its my understanding that w/ this set up, di mo na kailangan ang shock buff even w/ a light rec spring. Tama po ba?

I use the Hiett Red Buffs, 0.125" thick. When the slide locks you will not be able to pull the slide to release it. The only way to release it is by pressing the slide stop.

this combination results to the least felt recoil or most reliable one or both? Pwede po kasi suabe ang rec pero di reliable. pwede rin po reliable pero medyo malakas ang sipa - hindi pa optimum ang epekto ng fps.

I had no problems with reliability using different recoil spring weights. I've tried 18, 16, 14 and finally 12.5lbs which gave me the least felt recoil. I can go lower but i'm afraid that i would batter my gun too much.

Wala na Hiett yata ngayon pero pareho lang ng dimensions ng Wilson shok buffs (blue). Mas matibay nga lang kasi yung Hiett, hindi kasi tumatagal yung wilson buffs sakin.

P-G: si Laiza meron mga EGW parts. otherwise. hindi ko alam saan meron available. Online na lang.

ISMI 12.5lb recoil spring and 19lb hammer spring. I tried the 15 and 17 lb main springs pero nag-du-dud ako minsan, pero hindi extended fp gamit ko. I have an egw one-piece tungsten guide rod in my pistol. aftec extractor, bomar rear, dp 0.09 in fiber optic front sights. S&A msh/magwell, Videcki trigger. changed the orig top-end to an STI slide and Bar-sto bull barrel. I also have the Extreme Engineering Ultimate Hammer set installed.

problema na lang yung Indian!

actually, ang sama ng pagka fit ng slide, barrel, frame kasi yun smith ma gumawa bagito. talo pa maracas and tabingi yung fitting ng slide.

ng bumalik si shurchil sa pb, pina-refit ko ulit. ok na ngayon.

the parts i used are standard equipment for all Std Division pistols. although the EE hammer kit pinaka magandang mod gawin. ganda ng EE set, drop-in pa!

i can't find the thread sa brian enos forum about the pxt extractor and how to make a sleeve, but i'm sure our local smiths can figure out a way to make one for a regular extrractor or an aftec.

Guys, if you follow the original thread in the 1911 forum, the geometry of the FPS described by the threadstarter (1911Tuner) was actually the original design by JMB until the US Army complained that it was too hard to rack the slide so JMB obliged by increasing the radius where the FPS contacts the hammer.

Little factoid for you - if you need a little convincing - that the mod will not create a negative side-effect.

You do have to have a bit of mechanical common sense when fitting the part yourself and I kinda did it by trial and error the first time on my Norinco.

More help for you 1911 enthusiasts.
