Slide Stop, Gen 2

$55.95

Our second generation slide stop is an all original design that is totally reengineered to provide you a whole new level of functionality. 

  • Long wide pad for positive manipulation
  • Interior of lobe angled for easy installation - no more scratches on your slide!
  • Engagement surfaces optimized for positive lockback
  • Geometry improves slingshot slide release during reloads
  • Design improves detent spring pressure to minimize chance of premature lockback
  • .200" (nominal dimension) pin for improved lockup
  • Right end of pin has protruding convex domed tip, same as GI slide stops



Fits all 1911 pattern pistols, including Govt/Commander/Officer sizes and 2011/Caspian/Para double column frames.

.45 ACP version has .200" lobe protrusion.

9mm/.38/.40 version has .220" lobe protrusion.  **All calibers other than .45 will use 9/.38 slide stop**

Machined from bar stock and heat treated.

Carbon steel version has black oxide finish.

Stainless Steel version has matte bead blast finish.

 

**While this part is a drop in fit in many pistols, gunsmith fitting may be required on some guns.  The .200" (nominal) diameter pin may be bigger than your factory unit (they tend to run .198-.199") and may not drop right into the frame hole or may create a tighter lockup with the barrel's lower lugs.

***A popular question is "will this fit in my XXX 1911."  As above, every single 1911 will be a little different, and may or may not require gunsmith fitting.

    Gen 2 slide stop, 1911 fiber optic front sight and Low Mount 1911 rear sight;

    Installed a gen 2 slide stop on one of my 1911’s and I’m really happy with it, good quality slide stop all around. Also bought a 1911 fiber optic front sight and the Low Mount U notch rear sight to install as a pair. Little bit of fitting as expected but not much, very nice quality made 1911 sights for a great price. Fast shipping as well. Will definitely be buying more from 10-8, they offer quality parts at a great price, thank you 10-8!!!!!

    Great part

    Provides a nice, tight fi in my gun. It’s a definite improvement over the factory slide stop.

    Gen. 2 Slide Stop

    I think I have three of these on guns now. Quality of finish and design is evident. The shape/size of the pad allows me very positive contact to release slide with my trigger finger (lefty). I also like the bevel that makes for quick/no scratch re-assembly. The .200" pins required some minor fitting or tightened up barrel differently on each gun. Nothing wrong with other machined high quality slide stops, but the features on this make me prefer it.

    It is a great product and is better than the factory Staccato. I wish you had an extended slide release as well. It is hard to find them for 2011 in 9mm.

    Gen 2 Slide Stop

    I’m pretty picky when it comes to buying my parts because I want something I’m only buying once. I bought an EGW HD slide stop for my newest 2011 build. I wasn’t crazy about the fact that it didn’t come all the way to the other side of the frame or the fact that the thumb tab was very short. The ridges on it were great though. I called EGW and they recommended the 10-8 slide stop. I ordered it and it showed up in 3 days! I took it out and dropped it right into my pistol. Absolutely perfect! The pin sticks out the other side of the frame just enough to be able to push it out when disassembling the firearm. The thumb tab is considerably bigger without being obtrusive when holding the pistol and makes dropping the slide infinitely easier. Ridges are just as sharp as the EGW. This will be the slide stop I buy for every 1911/2011 I build.

    gen 2 slide stop

    Slide stops are not a necessary upgrade and there are 5 other manufactures making the same thing and I've never experienced a malfunction related to a slide stop. That being said, these Gen2s are pretty sweet. It has this gently increasing stairs that visually hide the fact that it is a paddle and the bottom is flat which make administratively locking the slide back easier. It is generally more attractive than other options on the market.
