It might actually be the notch in the slide, not the slide stop. When I first got my 1915 Colt I had a similar problem. I cleaned up the edge of the slide stop cut on the slide with a small needle file and have never had another problem with it.

As far as finding a Springfield slide stop, good luck. They are expensive, at least if the seller knows what it is. Last one I had sold on eBay for $125 about 3 years ago. As always, sometimes you get lucky and find one in a junk box for $5.

I think I would leave the Springfield Armory 1911 in it's original condition and not mess with the slide stop or notch or simply put up with the slide no locking back. With enough money should be able find a S Springfield marked slide stop.

Default Springfield 1915 slide stop

A very kind forum member reached out to me and offered me a Springfield slide stop that is correct for this 1911. It arrived today and is perfect. Great people on this forum. A great source for information and help.
