I utilize a mill. I use a drill bit in the quill. I look through the firing pin channel and center the bit vertically. I move the table and adjust the front sight so the bit is centered. I then...

So, I my most current thinking is that I have to chalk this up to slide/frame fit. I used the uber precise method of holding the gun upside down in a vise by the slide. I then pulled up on the...

I cannot remember if I first tried closing the gun on the .196 pin with the Nowlin barrel fixture in place.

With that being said, it would appear to be a systematic problem. I say this because...

Lower lug fitting

I am in process of fitting a Kart NM barrel to a Foster/Caspian frame/slide combo. My slide stop hole accepts a .200 gauge pin, but not a .201 pin. I intend to use a .200 Ed Brown slide stop. I...

Recently I took advantage of $100 frames from PSA. This was my first purchase of a PSA frame. Normally, I buy Caspian. For those considering PSA frames, this is what I found:

I first read about this a while ago on the old 1911pro.com forum. I remeasured two Caspian slides. I found that forward of the lock back notch the slide was .006 wider than at the rear of the slide.

It is my understanding that back in the day, the AMU performed a simple test to determine whether a barrel was fit "right" for the National Matches. The slide was eased down. If it needed thumb...

Some manufacturers intentionally open up the front of the slide, so that when recoiling there is less resistance. While the gun is locked up, everything is tight.

The issue I am having is not a "barrel spring" issue as normally seen. I think there is misunderstanding in how I explained it relative to "higher" firing pin strike. A sprung barrel normally wants...

One thing you should consider is your tolerance. What is good enough for you? If I want .200, then .199 or .201, bug me. The actual necessary tolerance is a bit irrelevant because I wanted .200. I...

The engagement is not the issue for me. What I don't understand is the primer strike moving in the opposite direction (from what I would expect) with the barrel holding fixture.

I suppose there is a way to make it work like a guide if you have a wide enough file, but for me it wasn’t worth it. I say that as a guy that is prone to buying things to make the job easier.

The working hypothesis is that it is the heavier recoil. The way I think of a .40 Glock is like that of a car engine that has been overbored. The gun was designed to run 9mm. The failure rates in...

When you mount your vise, regardless of the hole pattern, attempt to get the jaws parallel to the workbench edge. Mine is not and the optical illusion plays hell with me when trying to file straight.
