Would like to find one or two high-quality 1911 mainspring housings.  Am looking for steel construction, arched and checkered, either by hand or by machine.  Thank you.

Good request. Took me a while to find a good quality checkered msh.  Tons of them out there grooved or flat, but not combination of arched and checkered. I finally found Wilson Combat msh with magwell extension, but did not use magwell extension. It was a perfect fit. They also sell without magwell but there are complaints of poor fit. 
However, google search does not turn up any WC arched msh any more, but I did find this, which looks exactly like the one I had (minus magwell), machining lines are the same and are kind of unique.  Makes me think DP may have been a supplier to WC.

Thanks for information.  Do any 'flat housing' folks have some arched housing they are looking to part with?

OP
Let me know if Ric's isn't going to work for you. I have an RRA (blued) that I only mounted for a couple range trips.
