    Congrats ! Glad you found it. I have the Commander and love it, the only thing I did was change the front site and it preforms perfectly ! The guide rod assembly is good but if you want a change just try out diffrent weight springs.

    There are a lot of parts on any 1911 that need fitting; anything related to the sear and safeties come to mind. But the guide rods are typically drop in parts. I also think that the least useful upgrade to JMB's design is the full length guide rod. I have a Rock Island that has the JMB original guide rod, and I can't tell a difference at all. I've done it once, but I'll never swap another short guide rod for long. All it does is complicate disassembly.

    One man's opinion. Glad you found the sputnik spring plug!

    Congratulations on joining the fraternity, you're not a member until you've launched an end cap and spring, hopefully not at your own forehead. The round indention goes away after a week or so, however.

    The Commander is the only gun I don't have in 1911, I'm interested to see how you like yours.

    By the way, the only time I've ever not found the part was believe it or not, in my Sig P226. I got impatient and let the cap go too soon, and it shot straight up in the air. Never found the rod, but I had a spare luckily, so it worked out okay.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    I think I'm going to shoot it first and then decide. I know it won't make a lot of difference except for disassembly.

    The first time I took my Ruger apart, I felt the end cap brush my hair, Lol. I love my Ruger and I think I will feel the same about the Taurus. For some reason I just like the looks of the Commanders best but I do plan on owning a Government model one day.

    When I built my AR-15, I launched one of the smallest springs. Looked for an hour, figuring with all five dogs walking around I had to either find it right away, or give up. Then, a day or two later, there it was!

    Update. Finally got out to the range and put some rounds through it. It doesn't like the stock mag when you load all 8 rounds.Other than that it shoots fine

    There are "four boxes" that can be employed to resist the downfall of America, the ballot box, the soap box, the jury box and, lastly, the ammo box.

    You are not the first to launch a recoil spring cap!
    Shut up and reload!
