The slide stop, often referred to as a slide release, is a component that is found on nearly all semi-automatic handguns. While it is technically unnecessary and does not usually aid in the function of a firearm, its practicality makes it a good idea to keep around. As such, you should consider purchasing a spare 1911 slide stop in the event that yours becomes non-operational.  

So what does the 1911 slide stop actually do? In any semi-automatic handgun the slide stop is a small component that is used to keep the slide locked back. This can take place both manually by hand or automatically after the final cartridge has been discharged. In the case of a slide being locked back automatically, the magazine follower will push the slide stop up and lock it into its recess. With the 1911 pistol, the slide stop also serves as a connection point for the barrel link, which allows for the downward motion of the barrel when the slide moves out of battery. In the 1911, the slide stop is located on the left side of the slide just above 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 slide stops exist. Ours is designed specifically for mil-spec pistols.  

Spare parts are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly, especially all components that impact the firing sequence. In general, if a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement becomes necessary immediately – not only to keep a firearm functioning properly but also to ensure the safety of yourself and those around you.

It is also important to consider availability. At this time, Keepshooting.com is seeking to provide our customers with a wide selection of replacement parts for the M1911 pistol. Several parts are now readily available on our website at an affordable price. If you have any need for spare parts, now would be a good time to take advantage of this offering.
