is there a difference between the slide catches for the mkII and mkIII 1911's? from what i see there isnt, but the part numbers are different in the schematics.

There are two different catches. One for the 11rd mag & one for the 22rd mag

The bull barrel versions (Mark III and IV) have a different slide stop than the bushing barrel versions(Mark I and II).  I've no clue why as they use the same magazines.  Different part numbers usually indicate different parts.  ;)

yeah i saw the part number differences, but if the magazines are the same, then why different catches? the bushing barrels and bull barrels still have the same lug in the back as far as i can tell, because the catch goes through the hop and inner barrel and not the outer. i didnt know if anyone had first hand experience with the two.

two mags on the left are high caps, the other is 11rd. The HC mags come with a new slide stop & mag release
I don't know if thats the difference in the part numbers.

The different part numbers for them are purely cosmetic. The MK I & II vs. the MK III & IV are just the look of the part. The parts are compatible accross all models. Yes, there is the new version for the double stack as well.
