Per Clawson's Colt Government Model book. page 79. "In late 1949, numbered slide stops were adopted for pistols of different calibers."
"Number 2 length .197" Caliber .22 conversion units, and some caliber .38 AMU and Gold Cup .38 Mid-Range pistols"

I don't understand the question. My first post said it was a number two (2). There was no number four (4) according to Clawson

Sorry for the confusion. I was referencing Poyer's book. The four different types of stops since the first 1911? Of course I may be the one confused. Again thanks for the help.

Looks like a .22 Ace/Conversion Unit part.

deserttrans,

Some of us might not have Poyer's book,...so, it would be difficult to "Type" it according to that book. (If you have a commercial COLT marked "2" according to the info below,...you can Poyer "Type" it?)

There are military and commercial grooved slide stops,...if your slide stop is commercial and stamped "2" By COLT, it should fit the Clawson definition. Clawson has: "Number 2 length .205" - .210" Caliber .22 Conversion Units, and some caliber .38 AMU and Gold Cup .38 Mid-Range pistols."

Most likely, All COLT commercial slide stops made after WWII are grooved/serrated.

Here's some COLT marked 2s. (Picture of the "1" and "3" for examples of other COLT stamps beginning in 1949.)

Best Regards,

Poyer's use of "Type 3" this or "Type 4" that to define component variations is probably something he came up with, and frankly it's very confusing at time. There really is no official naming of the various component changes; only what collectors like to use. To the military a slide stop was a slide stop.

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.

Agree a no 2 Colt slide stop is for a Service Model ACE or .22 Conversion Unit.
Desirable, they tend to get separated from the Conversions.
