OK, here is a question for you PHD gun designers. Why is there a hump in the connector that makes that awful snag when cycling the slide? Why is it more pronounced when the striker is cocked? The sear should be holding the striker and the safety should be free to move easily just like when the striker isn't cocked. What am I missing? Is the safety holding the striker just rearward of the sear so pressure from the striker makes it harder to bump the safety up? I'll just go on record here and say....I don't like it. M1911

I don't even have a BS, of course I have been accused of being full of it, but I will attempt to identify and address that question. I thought that you and I had determine the safety was in fact holding the striker at least in part based on the pressure I had to apply to depress it and allow the striker to move forward. However, just because YOU asked, and you are the head professor, I will revisit that.

Trying to get a design ready for a 3PM client meeting so am pretty busy at present. I like putting things off to the last minute....Actually this client keeps asking for new items to be added. The last one is a screened in porch and double sided fireplace. That changes about everything in the patio area. M1911

Just think of all that "green" coming your way!

I have looked at everything and believe I might have an answer for you but need you to think about it and perhaps talk me thru a couple of tests to prove or disprove. I'm now 3 hours behind your time.

OK, here are my findings. When the striker is fully cocked it is 57/64th's from the back of the slide to the front edge of the striker lug....that's the edge that meets the back edge of the sear....which is exactly 57/64th's from the rear of the counter plate. At that point the striker is approx. 1/8" behind the firing pin safety. As you start to rack the slide I believe the striker clears the sear first followed immediately by the firing pin safety engaging the striker face. That accomplishes two things. It prevents a premature firing of a round in the chamber and allows the breech to open sufficiently so when the firing pin safety is released the breech is open which also prevents an unintended firing of a round. At that point the slide is cocking the striker normally and everything is reset.

Contrary to what Bret said in the video, it is a cleaner only -not a cleaner & lube.

As for the patches he was using, they're probably old Jaguars t-shirts I printed for him back in the day when he worked with the team? LOL

Follow-up:

Performed one additional test to see if my theory is correct. With the striker in the cocked position I reattached the slide to the frame without the recoil spring. I then proceeded to move the slide very slowly and deliberately to the rear until I felt the initiation of the bump. At that point I pulled the trigger....the striker did NOT release. Continuing the rearward movement of the slide did release the striker so the firing pin safety is pressed upward as it hits the top of the connector and moves rearward with the slide. The striker has been released and is recocked as the slide moves to the full rear position.

Thanks much for the info. I'm always interested in what the pros use (it's the old 'institutional knowledge' thing). I'll give it a try when I find who stocks it around here.
