well I got my new slide stop in the mail today. it was sharp and square where my old one was worn and rounded off. hopefully it will last longer than the last one. I bought it from Patriot Defense. I wonder if it came from EAA originally? I also installed  non radiused firing pin stop  blocks in both the Witness and my Colt Officers Mod. 1911. now to go shooting and try them out!

today I put about 150 full house 10mm s thru the Witness. I just finished cleaning it and the .45. the new slide stop is just starting to get shiny at the wear points but is still square.
I didn't really notice any difference in racking the slide or recoil with the flat bottom firing pin retainers. the Witness seemed to shoot better and closer to point of aim.

That's a good start. Keep your eye on it though! If some of us have thousands on the original, yours shouldn't show wear early into it.
