Proto-Type FOUND !!!!!!!!!!!!!



Log in to see fewer ads
While searching thru the Scrap Piles left in the Texas High Standard Plant, I found a Pistol Frame that I had converted to a M1911 Magazine Type Release about 20 years ago. . Approximately 100 -M107 and M102 Frames had been cut in some type of destruction plan ??? Some of the frames had defects(correctable) and some had NO apparent Issues. The frames were cut in a Straight line forward of the trigger guard and can be welded back together. I had never had any drawings made for the Push Button Release. That will now happen next week !!! I beleive that I had come up with the parts design at the request of one of the shooters in the "Chevy Challenge". I will add this to the "X-Series" Pistols as an Option. You can remove the Loop Magazine release parts and have a Push Button for a "DROP FREE" magazine release. If I ever figure out how to post pictures, I will post the pictures after our move/ consolidation is complete.- Alan Aronstein

Alan:

To post pictures create a .jpg file of the picture. When you open the Web page to create the post, the paper clip in the center of that control area of the window is clicked. This opens another window that guides you to selecting the .jpg file.

Getting the picture into your computer is another problem. What you need is a teenage computer/phone whiz to help you. My grandson is my crutch even though I have an engineering degree. They didn't teach this stuff 50+ years ago when I went to college!!! What was with that? :-) :-)

That type release usually has a notch cut on the forward edge of the magazine to allow the button mag release to work. At a minimum standard mags would have to be modified, I would think. I doubt it would take a totally different design, just the added notch. But the design would have to take into consideration the magazine spring which rides where that notch needs to be. But that of course is up to Alan and how he wants to design this new option (??).

New/Old Magazine Catch Project

It is basically a modified version of the 2nd Model Woodsman Catch and Magazine. I worked on the Woodsman Project that was being built by Iver Johnson (AR) in 1994. As an aside, I just found and took to the Colt Collectors Meeting in Frisco,Tx : The ONLY surviving I/J Frame of the Woodsman Project !!! - Alan Aronstein

This whole thing has me pretty excited. Was discussing HS and it's future or potential "not future" with my GF's son. He's got a scuffed but serviceable Supermatic that I was stupid enough to take to the range. 5 shots stacked on top of each other at 30 feet. I'm not that good. Needless to say, there is one less on Gunbroker. Should have it next week. I'm pumped up. Already have a Sport King and a Sharpshooter that I've had for nearly 40 years.

I will do what I can to support the effort. First pistol of any sort I ever shot was Dad's lever Sport King. Hated to let it go at the auction, but I bought my own in college and got a few others that I couldn't let go of.

Best of luck, and what a cool find.
