WTB: Black plastic MSH!

WTB: Black plastic arched main spring housing!

This will be used on a Nelson/Fusion .22 B/E gun.

I had one (Colt's) and sent it to a forum member a few years ago. Who knew I'd be searching for one now?

Thanks,

Are you talking about the black plastic serrated MSH? I think I have one in my parts bin but won't be able to check until Tuesday. IIRC my MSH has some handling marks from use.

It sounds like the one I had. It was ordered from Brownell's when Colt's parts were available. I sent it to a member in the pay it forward section.

It will be used to fit inside a custom grip for Bulls-eye. These were custom made in the 60's that I'd like to try for my Nelson/Fusion 1911 .22!

What are you looking for I have quite a collection of 1911 parts!

Smiles,

I wonder if you sent it to me? hahaha

I recall I procured my MSH used (from where I cannot remember). It is arched, and I used it in my Kimber to replace the flat MSH. Then I switched back to the stock flat MSH, and the black arched MSH has sat forlorned ever since. I'll go digging in my parts bin when I return to town on Tuesday.

If I do find the black arched MSH do you want to trade? I kind of dislike the wide thumb safety on my Les Baer. I could use a blued extended thumb safety that's not as wide as the one LB installs on his pistols.

I don't have a thumb safety but I can recommend the Wilson "Tactical " thumb safety, Brownell's: 965-600-007WB
Tactical, Matte Blue
Mfr Part: 6BN

I do have an blue extended slide stop from Brownell's though.

Smiles,

It will be to good use. Bulls-eye guns are for work not for looks!

Thanks,

Got the MSH today, thank you!

The package says S/S Arched MSH inside was a grey plastic flat MSH! Looks like somebody swapped MSH's and put the original back in the package. It's all good! Now I have another one to pay it forward.

This is becoming a one year saga with one on back order!
