Lanyard loop mainspring housing




I would like to add some type of safe Lanyard to mt Springfield 1911. I will be using it frequently on a gator hunt this year and would feel better knowing I want loss it in the dark waters of The St Marys river. Any thoughts, experience, recommendation. The one from Brownells is 50 bucks....

Are you looking for a non-ILS MSH?

The Guncrafter Industries one is the stuff! Check it out.

Agreed!


Though, I wish someone would make one with serrations as well as checkering...

Like this one?


M.A.R.S makes them. Persoanlly, I have three Guncrafter (two blued, one stainless), an Ed Brown Chainlink, and a modified Smith & Alexander magwell. Never been a fan of serrated mainspring housings. But different people like different options, hence the multiple typed available.

Yes, exactly like that one... I have a MEU(SOC)ish Springer being built & don't much like the lanyard loop which extends below the magwell.

thanks Robert!

I have a flat Colt serrated MSH to which MARS added the ILAP. It is great and I have it installed on a custom 1991. If you already have a MSH, MARS can modify it at a very reasonable cost, around $ 45, I believe.

I also have the Guncrafter MSH on my Range Officer. I like it as well.

Either way you really cannot go wrong.
