Serrated Recoil Spring Plug/Cap

At what point in time did serrating vs checkering recoil spring plugs become the norm and was it done for Remington Rand, Ithaca and Colt?

Serrated recoil spring plugs were replacements made long after the end of WW2, likely post-Vietnam.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
