It is obvious what this is. It is a 1911 recoil spring guide with a spring-loaded plunger on one end. It was designed to cushion the effects of recoil on the slide and frame and supposedly the shooter.

The questions are:

1. Who made this one?

2. When (approx.) was it made?

I know the answer to #1, and would like to know the answer to #2.

Mark, the only folks I know who made those were Bar-Sto and Kings Gun Works. I'd suspect bar-Sto in this case, as I don't remember the Kings unit having the small set screw to retain the plug. As for date - no idea.

Bar-Sto it is.

Don Williams is a very smart guy. I guess that's why I trust him with my guns. :wink:

Easy question. Easy, that is, if like me you watched Irv's brother machining the component parts.

I don't recall that they were ever individually dated.
