As noted, the 1911 magazine catch holds a number of different functions in the M1911 pistol. The magazine catch is a part of the magazine catch assembly, which includes the magazine catch, the magazine catch lock and the magazine catch spring. With the M1911, the magazine catch is responsible for locking the magazine into the frame of the pistol. Similarly, depressing the magazine catch will release the magazine from the frame. In the 1911, the magazine catch is located in the frame of the pistol just behind the trigger. This newly manufactured part was manufactured to mil-spec 1911 specifications and features a black oxide finish. Note that a wide variety of the 1911 magazine catches exists. Ours is designed specifically for mil-spec pistols.
