  1. You might do a quick check to make sure the extractor channel doesn’t have a bunch of goo in it and the tension is correct. I’ve also had sporadic stovepipes from a loose ejector. I’m sure there is info on both of these here or the 1911 forum.
  2. That’s the info I was looking for! Thanks! Unfortunately both the PT and LSI were sold out at Speed Shooters. The Atlas is fine and I’m going to run with it but if I find the need for another one I’ll probably try the Lone Star.

  4. I missed the boat on the sale, I ordered their standard ambi a week and a half ago:(
  5. The Atlas has a steeper angle and gives more of a ‘thumbs up’ hold than the SV, and it’s not quite as wide. It was pretty meaty and took a fair amount of fitting and blending which isn’t a bad thing. It’s going to stay on my gun but if I had to do it again I’d probably try the Lone Star or EGW. Or roll the dice on another SV.
  6. For as pricy as they are I’ve seen a fair amount of mention of them breaking, they sure do look pretty though. The Atlas came yesterday packed in rust preventative so I didn’t get it out. The thumb pad looks to be 3/32” narrower than the SV but still wider than standard.
  7. I went ahead and ordered the Atlas I’ll post dimensions when I get it for others reference
  8. Thanks Stymie ! I’m assuming the .250” is what’s extending out from the slide? They didn’t look extended in the photos but it’s hard to tell. Looks like I may be giving the Atlas a try
  9. Does anyone know how wide the EGW or Atlas non shielded are? The SV is .41” and I would like to stay in the same neighborhood.
  10. I had considered that when the right side broke off, coincidentally (it seems now) I had dropped my empty gun setting up my practice props for the day and that could have caused it. I’ve heard of others breaking and at this point I’d rather replace it with one with a better track record.
  11. The right side of my wide SV thumb safety broke off at the post during a practice session this spring, sucks, I like the size and shape. The left side was fine so I continued to run it . Well the left side broke off today... Who makes a similar size and shape that isn’t a consumable part?
  12. Thanks for the update and info! I have a Gans that has some erosion. I noticed it shortly after I bought it, I don’t know if it was with the previous owner or me. It hasn’t progressed but it’s nice to know there are economical repair options.
  13. In the interest of good taste I’m not going to comment on that one
