Does anyone make a 1911 slide stop like the Norwegian 1914’s?

    It seems like a superior design over the standard 1911 slide stop, because it could be easily operated one handed.

    I can do a regular 1911 one handed. But maybe I have big hands.

    I can’t, and I’d say I have average sized hands.

    That is an interesting stop for sure, would like to have one to mess with, for now I just use an extended SS on all my 1911's, one handed operation is no prob. Not sure I like the way it requires the grip panel to be "adjusted"

    There are aftermarket extended slide stops, but I've never seen one with a downturned extension like that. Be advised that these have been known to jump up into the slide notch - either of their own weight/inertia under recoil or inadvertently pushed by the thumb - and arrest the slide when you still want to be shooting.

    The standard stop is difficult to reach with a normal shooting grip, but I can still twist the gun in my hand to reach it. Or you can trip it with the thumb of your support hand.
