Although Colt abandoned the matching angled recoil spring plug and barrel bushin in their Gold Cups years and years ago, I'm wondering just how much that helped accuracy?

It just looks and feels like a great way to use spring pre-loading to keep the barrel and bushing pressed up into the slide the same way every time. Maybe not a factor when the bushing is an interference fit in the slide--proper fitting on the NM modifications--but would preserve the same effect as that fitting if and as things wear.

Any idea why no one else ever did it? Seems like making anything self-centering like that would be a good idea for accuracy.

Thoughts?
