The brass on WWB can also be too long. Chamber depth is a concern. To consistently run WWB, I have found chamber depth needs to be in the middle of the Go and No Go gauges on 45.

Put a slight bend in the center of the pin. Ejector looseness may not be improved but at least the pin will be tighter. Where's the pin gonna go when the slide is on the gun? :)

One thing I know about Rob...he's a pretty benevolent dictator.

I would like to do a consecutive set for someone. That would be very cool for sure.

That's why I don't build 10mm. I'm kind of a hack and can't figure it out. So, other than saddling people with my crap guns, I steer around it to save both of us the trouble.

The styling of the guns still has to be somewhat "retro". That's the code that guides me.

The mainspring absorbs most of the recoil and controls initial rearward speed of the slide. The recoil spring mostly serves to close the slide and load a round.
