The springer does. Easily eliminated though. Just take it out of the mainspring housing. 5 minute job.

welcome to thr.

yes sa does, my mc operator has it, with that said though they are easy to remove like the above poster said, as well the owners manual tells and shows you how to do it. i plan to get mine removed.

I know it is easy to remove, but you should not have to remove a single thing when you buy a pistol.

Hi,
I run OnTarget Custom Gunworks. There are a few choices but here is what I would recommend ranked in value for the money.

Springfield $600-over $2000\
These are the easiest to convert. All you need is a new firing pin, spring and MSH internals. Very easy to do. And you can replace the MSH if you don't like the lock being in there. Contact me off list. I have enough left over parts that I could sell you everything you need very cheap.
Series 70 Colt. No locks and good value. Harder to find. $800-$1000
Les Baer. $1200-over $3000
Ed Brown - $1500+++
Wilson - $2k+++
Nighthawk - $2500+++
Colt Series 80- These can be converted by removing the Schwartz style safety and replacing these with a series 80 plate. Also very easy to do and cheap. About $10.00 for the part and 20 minutes of your time. $800-$2000.

It all depends on how handy you are with a few hand tools. There are MANY places on the Internet that tell you how to detail strip a 1911. With practice you can have it stripped in less than 3 minutes. My recommendation in value for the money would be to go with a Colt or Springfield.

Colt doesn't use the POS Schwartz system in series 80's . Now Kimber does and I belive S&W One of the reasons I hate my Kimber. . A friend of mine just had his break at the range . It back at Kimber getting fix . Glad he wasn't needing for real.
Colt tried and droped that a long time ago . Like before WWII
Besides were talking about internal locking device . Not fireingpinblocking

Get a Dan Wesson no lock Off your list buy a Colt I have both
