Cut a thickish, semi-gloss business card to fit...

Do what liberallyloaded mentioned. I had some clear plastic laying around that I used for making stencils. I just used that plastic and made my own tool. Takes a few minutes.

The permanent solution. Once notched, it pushes straight in. All my 1911's have it.

You can do the samething in 5 minutes with a file.

Yep, I did my SA Loaded in just a couple minutes, simple to do.

I can't refinish it in the same coating as my pistol.

The BESTEST solution for this. ^^^

While the ISPT thingy or a business card, or electrical tape or any other solutions will help, the Log-man mod is perfect. You can field strip your 1911 and put it back together as fast as a clumsy person with a Glock!

The problem is that the SA slide stop is an absolute bear to put back in. Not sure why though (plunger spring? shape of the divot? shape of the slide stop?). And, those solutions won't keep you from putting a scratch on the slide (ask me how I know). Except for maybe the electrical tape.

Take a few minutes with a small file and put that notch into it. Smooth it out and you will see how easy it is to do now.

The finish on the slide stop won't really matter. It's on the inside. You 'could' use a black pen if it really bugged you.

Here's the link to the original Log-man mod. https://forums.1911forum.com/showthread.php?t=214653

If you need anything on your 1911, those guys on the 1911 forum are awesome! A lot of talented smiths over there who will share a ton of knowledge and experience.

EDIT-Added youtube video with brief description of the mod. Go to 3:20 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fvkcJTCmNk


Happy shooting and be safe!

I had SACS furnish and install a Harrison Design slide stop on my TRP. They did the "EZ In/Out mod" (AKA Log Man mod) and cut it flush to the frame. Really like that slide stop, very ergonomic.
