Well when I got my 1932 Argentine Fed colt 1911 back the lanyard ring was bent. Well a friend tried to bend it back well it did not come out well snap off it went. Well I got one of those lanyard ring from Brownells and dropped it off at the gunsmiths well I got a call from the gunsmith he said he found a vintage mainspring housing with lanyard loop said it would look better than having a shinny brand new loop on and more easy for him I said go ahead not bad for 20 bucks I seen mainspring housing go for more.
Looks better with the lanyard loop so it look original. I also put on some colt factory grips I think it looks a little better
