Loaded Black Stainless Mod




So I am buying the gun in title PPT. The guy at the gun shop where we did the PPT said there is a mod that I can remove the allen screw that has to be taken off the strip the gun down and buy parts to make it a push button set up to strip it. Anybody know what he was talking about and where to get those parts?

Sounds like he was talking about swapping out the factory two-piece guide rod that requires an allen wrench, for a g.i. guide rod and plug. A common mod. Many sources for the two parts required, but many use Ed Brown. Cost: $20ish. Drop-in, no fitting required.

http://www.edbrown.com/cgi/start.cgi/parts.htm
The parts required are 881-STD-S and 881-STD

You pull out the old plug and 2 piece guide rod and replace them with GI style plug and guide rod. Very common modification.

Ok but the part numbers Skipsan posted are only plugs. A blue plug and a stainless plug. So I am trying to get an idea what the GI style guide rod is or the part number. On this page http://www.edbrown.com/cgi/htmlos.cg...09882866062826 is it part #889?

That is a recoil spring guide. I thought Tonimus said the GI guide rod? It looks like the part number 889 two-piece guide rod with the plug is all I need. But I am not sure so that is why I am asking....learning.

Yes--if the recoil spring has any age on it, it's a good excuse to change it out, but there's no difference in the spring itself.

Same bushing. The only thing you need is a GI guide rod and plug.
