Yawn. This BS has been around for YEARS. So far has ZERO traction. If you think it has
merit, just grind the end of the slide stop pin down so it's flush with the frame. So far I
haven't seen any manufacturers doing it. Move along---nothing to see here.

Exactly. I have never heard of this being a real issue. I have been shooting my 1911 for more than 30 years and have never seen this happen with myself or any other 1911 shooter.

I would point out the barrel bushing as a design flaw before the takedown pin. If the bushing is too loose you lose accuracy, too tight and sustained fire causes ceasing.
Personally never had an issue with either.

Yep, a fatal flaw of the same magnitude that Dateline NBC discovered with GM pickups. At least special effects & pyrotechnics weren't required in this instance
Has anyone in the real world ever had a problem with this? I assume that anything is possible, I'm just not aware of any real issues.

FWIW, nothing is perfect.

Yeah, the 1911 leaves a person with NO effective means of shooting in a self defense situation. WTF ever. "Tell that to the Marines"

I guess since it has such a fatal design flaw i'll have to trade my 1911 in. :rollseyes:
i've also never heard of anyone encountering this issue in the real world.
One would think if it were such a flawed design it would have been changed sometime in the last 100 years.

The point and shoot method is a bit out dated to begin with, have shot extensivly for 35 years and never had an issue, (90% .45 ACP)
