1911 ATI / GSG / Sig Sauer 22 LR Magazine Safety Removal & Mainspring Housing Replacement
Removing the magazine safety in your GSG or Sig Sauer 1911 22LR pistol is one of the most easiest modification that you can do to your gun. In this video I will show you to the how to steps to accomplish this. Additionally I'll show you have to replace the factory curved main spring housing to an aftermarket flat one. This is also a very simple task and with a little patience you can accomplish it in no time. This video will pertain to all 1911's. So even if you do not own one of these fantastic 22 pistols, this video can help you modify your full power 1911.
I this video I do all my modifications on my second GSG pistol where I am in the process of converting the factory weapon into an IPSC Open gun. Any gun that is chambered for the 22 caliber long rifle round and is a close replica of your main center-fire gun is an inexpensive way to train.
This gun will do double duty since I plan to make my modifications based on smaller hands so that my son can start shooting Steel Challenge Competitions with me. However, It's gonna be cool anyway!
Be sure and pick your magazine upgrade kit for the GSG and Sig Sauer 1911 22LR pistol. With this magazine modification, you can get 15 rounds in the magazine and 1 in the chamber for a total of 16 rounds of ammunition in the gun!
