I have hinted a couple times that I was working on something new for 1911's well I can finaly talk about it. Below is a Pic of the repalceable backstrap mainspring housing. I have to say a special thank you to Mark Kresser, with out his guidance and encouragement I would not be sitting here today telling you guys about this project. In the pic is he first 3d printed mainspring housing. I put in all the guts in and ill be darned if it did not shoot.It does need some tweeking here and there but it is start in any case. I have no idea where this will take me, it is possable no where but so far this has been moe aboutthe jouney and not the destination

Congratulations! Man that's funny. While looking at 1911s at my lgs this morning before work I wondered when/if someone was going to come out with replaceable back straps for that gun.

Very cool and congratulations. If there is a base mainspring housing, then it can receive a "backstrap" such as flat, arched, smooth, etc?

Great job Robb. As a fellow patent holder allow me to give you a piece of advice.... NEVER stop at just one Patent. Keep creating, keep inventing.

I would like a complete set with your name etched on the inside or perhaps your initials stamped. Do you need my address yet? :)
