"Fast draw" M1911A1

Recommended Posts

Pinning the grip safety can be done in many ways, some more permanent than others.

 

One option is to indeed put a hole in your frame, other options include putting a hole on the grip safety itself, cutting the safety leaf spring etc.

 

You asked about how I acomplished it in my video, I used a very simple and non-permanent solution, a piece of rubber.

 

It's very easy to do and install and won't damage the gun in any way, I'll post an explanation with pictures (and maybe a video) when time allows, if you want.

 

 

Definitely intrested in seeing how you done it mate, pic's or video please.

Take out the pin from the base of the mainspring housing, slide the MSH down about 2mm,

 

place an AEG hop nub on the lip sticking out of the base of the grip safety,

 

Slide the MSH back up over the hop nub so that it holds the grip safety in.

 

Done.

 

 

 

Did this on my MEU and both my Hicapas, some pistols need quite a thick nub, others just a normal one.

You, sir, are an utter legend - I've been trying to figure out an easy way of pinning the grip safety for bloody ages now, I'd never thought of something so simple! Just did it, took me all of 8 seconds, perfect result. Thanks man :)

Surely the fast draw all depends onthe holster?

 

Good open holster, pinned grip safety, light trigger and a good to respond thumb safety would make a quick draw one as it is from the holster to the first shot that the time is counted. ;)

Well.... Its Shiny?

 

 

Nah bit more than that:

 

Pinned grip safety

Full auto Mod

Lightened trigger

Smoother action

 

Polished inner Barrel

All sanded down

Fancy grips

 

Near enough. Apologies if this isn't in the right spot.

 

Edit: FK beat me to it.

Yeah, looks great Westyll!

 

Mine's been finished for a while, used it in two or three games. But, I decided to skip the fall auto on mine, as I just love using by itself in CQB to much to sacrifice it. But, I shortstroked the slide(seen some hilarious reactions at games when people rack the slide), polished the sides nice and pretty and smooth, and it's settling into a USGI leather holster quite nicely. I just need yo practice up a bit now.
