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.

    Slide release

    Great product, feels better than the factory stock one!

    Slide stop

    This product fit perfectly in my hand built commander 1911. It was one of the last personally picked parts to complete the build. It has a slightly wider shelf to disengage and release the slide to load a round in the chamber. The texture and shape is perfect for me. I wouldn’t change a thing about it.

    10-8 1911 slide stop

    The slide stop is another high quality part from 10-8 Performance. The angle and corner of the front part makes contact with my support side thumb when I establish a grip. Doesn't work for me but it should with someone that doesn't use my type of shooting grip.

    10-8 Gen 2 Slide Stop

    Just like ALL 10-8 products, the Gen 2 Slide Stop is executed perfectly in design and performance. I have used 10-8 products since they started up as a company and they never disappoint. I was running into issues with the factory Colt slide stop in my 9mm 1911 Government Model in which I was getting intermittment fail to lock the slide back on Colt magazines. I watched Hilton's 1911 video and heard his explanation on how the 10-8 Slide Stopwas designed and why it was better than a factory stop. So instead of hacking up the factory stop and most likely making the situation worse, I ordered the 10-8 stop. Fixed the issue immediately with no mods made by me! Hilton's experience really shows through the design input of his products. I have been and will be a lifelong customer of 10-8 Performance!

    1911 45ACP - Slide Stop, Gen 2

    Fits perfectly on my Springfield 1911 .45ACP. High quality part and much easier to press down than the stock slide release. Must have upgrade!

    Good design

    This product was very well thought out all of the edges are cut at a radius so there’s Less chance of fracturing. There was enough material for me to cut the tab down a little bit. I don’t like things to extend out to far out on my pistols

    Outstanding product

    Improves look of pistol especially with the EGW thumb safety. Did require fitting to install but after 5 mins filing in the right spots it works flawless.

    Amazing

    Looks great fits perfectly... matches the sti finish perfectly

    Awesome Slide Stop

    This fit my Dan Wesson Vigil like a charm. Best company to deal with and their shipping rivals Amazon ;-)

    Quality replacement for MIM junk

    Bought this part in hope of tightening the lockup on my S&W E series 1911. The stock part was .195 and really loose. The 10-8 stop is dead on .200, so I got .0025 tighter. Unfortunately, I still had a soggy lockup, and resorted to a slightly longer link to tighten it up and fix the 10-12" high impacts at 25 yds. A new barrel is in my future, I suppose.
