Irrelevant. The sight goes with the slide and the slide with the caliber. Any centerfire round will be a different slide.

I would ensure that the sides of the hammer slot in the slide are even with the slot in the frame for appearance and to gain whatever clearance to the hammer sides that you can get from that. Then...

OK. As an FYI, Kimber is not a Series 80. It has a different firing pin safety based on the Swartz safety that Colt used briefly in the 1930s. It operates off the grip safety. The Series 80 operates...

No reason at all that it would not work if done properly. I've modified Mk 3 sear levers to remove the paddle when I could not get the correct sear lever for an earlier gun. I would machine a hole...

How much knowledge of/experience with a 1911 do you have? I'm guessing you are new to them. It takes one hell of a lot of shooting to wear out a 1911. That one has not gotten there by a long shot....

In your other thread you posted a link to a full sized gun, not an Officer's size. Why the Officer's kit?

Occam's razor - The only change is the grip safety, so that is where the problem lies. If the thumb safety was truly properly fit/working correctly with the original grip safety and the only change...

The Novak no bite mod is on the shank between the base and the spur. Novak does the mod on both the regular spur hammer and the ring style. That is the usual place that you get bitten, right where...

I was going to ask how wide the trigger bow way are vs print spec. Too wide and the bow can move around too much. I've seen lots of manufacturer's frame with the track showing at the back. Colt,...

The No Bite hammer is a good mod. C&S Hi Power parts are very good (with the exception of the extended safety). That said, 10 minutes with a Dremel will make yours a No Bite that works just as well...

:biglaugh: But, but, but... I ENJOY challenges! I have built many 1911s, revolvers, a few bolt rifles, a butt load of FALs, and assembled several ARs. Nope. Off the shelf defeats my purpose.

We can only hope. Lol!

What you provided was a good start. I will keep notes so that anyone else who attempts this and asks can get my experience added to the mix.

Lot's of misunderstanding about machine tools, fixtures, jigs, and associated costs is very evident in this thread. Not to mention the valuation of acquired expertise.

Got the itch for an AR-10. I could have bought one and may still, but my first will be assembled by me. That said, the AR-10 ain't like its little brother with one main standard for parts...

I would be reluctant to remove the cam from the frame. The steel frame cams are pressed in with the edges peened over to retain it in the frame, then filed/stoned flush with the frame. This generally...

It is inconsequential in that location and in fact many modern 1911s of other than 10mm come with that area cut away as a matter of course during the manufacturing process. Got a photo?

Pretty much why I just started an AR-10 build, not that I expect to be at Camp Perry. It would be nice if there were fewer "spec" for the AR-10, but nothing insurmountable with a little due diligence.
