    No FLGRs in my house, so I'll stick with removing the spring before the slide stop, thank you...
    I bet it was, sir, it's bad enough with the standard #16!

    The answer to that little frustration is simple.
    Just buy a high quality aftermarket complete 1911 pin set from Evolution Gun Works or Ed Brown etc. & switch out the little plungers for the higher quality aftermarket ones.
    Problem solved. & as a plus you get higher qualiity "hardened tool steel" pins for the rest of your 1911 that you can eventually "switch out" whenever you learn to do a complete disassembly.
    I appreciate the tip about replacing the pin set. Reinstalling the slide stop is getting a little tuff on my aging fingers.

    If you use the "alternative method" assembling without spring tension, installing the slide stop is as easy as laying the gun on it's right side, aligning the notch, and using both thumbs gently push up and in.

    It's actually during the reassembly that this happens and it really isn't like your Kahr. There's several ways for it to happen, but basically the noob (in this case, me) attempts to force slide stop pin in, when it is not properly aligned. Some pressure is required, as it has to snap past a retention spring (plunger), and I guess only experience tells you when you're having to apply too much pressure and you're about to slip and have it skid across the precious finish on the frame.

    Another popular method of applying the 'idiot scratch' is attempting to ease past the retention spring by swinging the slide stop in from the bottom.
    Parkerized Springfield Loaded here. And unfortunately wearing that dreaded mark. For sure it's name is right on, as I was being a complete idiot and won't go into the specifics. My question is, other than having the whole frame refinished......is there a way to hide/diminish/remove the scratch? It's not real deep but it's there and I'm much better now at reassembly. Really I am!
    Yes, I was and still am pretty much a noob to 1911's. It was my first one. Sure would like to remove this reminder of my mistake.

    Anyone?

    I sure appreciate the tip on replacing/upgrading the pin assembly. And the FLGR also.

    A little 44/40 cold blue on a Q-Tip works wonders, Bud.

    Good Morning and Thanks Dan. I'll check it out.
    I think I know your take on FLGR's. I'm leaning towards replacing the original set-up on the Loaded with a traditional GI setup. Any reason to NOT do this? I'd sure like to be able to disassemble without the hex wrench.

    Morning Bud.

    You won't get any argument out of me, I don't much care for FLGRs and switching it out to the GI style won't harm your pistol in the least.
