Arched mainspring housing




How many of you use an Arched MSH? I just put an Ed Brown on my new Springfield Black SS Combat, i really like the way it fills your hand over a flat MSH. Might have to put one on my S&W 1911.

An arched came on my GI and it was fine - it felt comfortable in the hand from what I can recall. I maybe put 200 rounds through it before I swapped it out. The only reason I switched to a flat was to put a Ed Brown MSH with a magwell.

Why????

I used to shoot bullseye longer ago than I like to think about. While I have no perferance as to feel. While in the army, and shooting an endless amount of ammo, I found that a flat msh added points to my scores.
I sometimes helped out the armmorer and we constantly changed msh to suite different shooters. There is a difference in accurecy for different people. We found a about 8 to 1 in favor of flat msh. Dont get me wrong some shot better with arched. We had plenty if both on hand.

Prefer flat MSH myself. Better grip in my hand. To me that lump on the backside serves no purpose. Does give the gun some curves.

I use a flat MSH myself. I have used both but changed. Just feels better in my hand and shoots just fine.

I switched out the flat msh with the S&A arched with mag well a while back on my TRP Professional. I prefer the arched over the flat. I also like the way it fills the gap in my hand. The S&A is a quality unit.
