JT I happen to love the Bobtails, plus I really like that Ed brown does not use FLGR. So in case of a life and death situtaion it can be racked with your belt or heel of your shoe.
BTW that is one sweet looking pistol be proud.

I like the way Ed Brown thinks on using guide rod plugs instead of FLGR's .The 1911 was always a S/D pistol and if wounded you can still rack the slide with your shoe or belt.
SIg also has the same way of thinking. I almost replaced all my carry 1911 with Plugs instead of the FLGR's They add nothing to being accurate, they may help spring bindinding if you ever seen it happen?

OK, dumb question but how does one rack the slide utilizing the recoil spring plug? :thinking:

You don't rack the slide all the way. You press the slide back a little to see if there's a round in the chamber. When I do it (seldom) I hook my thumb in the trigger guard and press the side of my index finger against the recoil plug. That will take the slide out of battery and let me see into the ejection port.

Primers, you are describing a "press check", yes?
The above quote seems (to me) to reference fully racking the slide to chamber a fresh round (life & death) as in using one of the sights on the edge of a table, etc. Just wondering how a FLGR has any effect in that type of situation. :confused:

Oh you're right, I guess the FLGR would have no effect if you racked the slide with the rear sight. The "press check" is another story altogether.
