Handle screws
 
A guy at a shooting was telling me that I needed to replace the screws on my Springfield 1911 handle. Because the stock screws have a tendency to loosen during shootings. But I've been having trouble finding plain flat head screws. Does anyone know where I can get better screws an do I need to get new screw housings as well?

Why do you need to replace the grip screws? Are they coming loose? Are they "boogered"?

Brooms, hammers, and axes have handles.

1911s have grips!

personally i think the guy is full of ...........:rolleyes:

if they aren't loose, i wouldn't worry about replacing them, unless you just wanted to.

I have a springfield 1911 and I have never had a problem with the screws becoming loose while I was shooting. My philosophy is if your not having a problem with something, just leave it alone.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If you DO have a problem with a screw working loose, a dab of blue Loc-tite on the threads will take care of that.

I've also had good luck with small O-Rings.
