Where to add weight on SS gun

Looking for ideas to add 2 ozs or more to my 1911. It's a typical 5 inch SS gun with dawson magwell.

I had it tritopped and now it is way lighter. So what can I do that will add some weight and hopefully help with recoil.

For reference, I like heavier guns and like the way they shoot. I'm just not sure how to reliably add weight without changing frames.

I'm not sure, but I seem to recall that Cha-Lee might have offered

a brilliant explanation of where to add weight (probably not a 1911,

but it might have been a 2011) back a year or two ago.

You might drop him a note and see if I'm correct. :cheers:

Yeah, I'd go with the Tungsten FLGR on a competition gun to reduce the recoil. But as Gary Stevens said make sure you are weighing your gun with a mag in it.

Also, be aware that a 5" Tungsten guide rod will probably weigh 3+ ounces so depending on what type of guide rod you now have it might get you awfully close to the 43 ounce limit.
