I've got two 1911 .380s that I convert between .380 and .22 using .22 slide assemblies.
You WILL need a .22 slide stop/lock, but the .380 extractor...
SG, I don't doubt you. What triggered my question is that I have one 1911-22 and two 1911-380/22 conversions for a total of 3 frames and 5 slides,...
Where is the 380 larger than the 22?
I haven't noticed that problem yet.
I have used a file to reshape some of my slidestop tabs so that they better match the shape of the slide notches. Spreads the load a bit.
Yes, but problems with shape or protrusion of the 22 follower platform are the usual cause of failure to lock back on the last round.
Have you checked the plastic 'platform' protrusion on the 22 mag follower that engages the slidestop to see if it has worn and rounded off from use?...
Also, check to make sure you have a 22 slidestop installed, and not the 380 slidestop.
I too, am an Engineer, but from America. I'm equally comfortable in both systems. Had I realized you were European, I would have used metric....
Installation and fictionality....?
What does that mean?
How closely did the measurements I sent you match?
Is that for Compact?

BTW, if your mag is removed so the gun doesn't fire, just press and hold the mag release button, and it will.
