Caspian Classic Vertical Slide Serrations?

Odd question I hope some of you can help me with.

How true to USGI-spec are Caspian slides with the vertical slide serrations?

Looking at a USGI-Colt, I count 19 vertical cuts that start about 1.5 CM from the rear of the slide.

I'm deciding whether or not to use a replacement slide for a retro-USGI build or just get a new slide from Caspian.

Appreciate any information I can get on this!

Here is my Caspian slide and frame "Retro" with some modern refinement by Larry Vickers built 18 years ago.

Every time you post a picture of that pistol I feel more than a little jealous.

19 years and 31 posts, You need to slow down friend

That gun did make it to Orlando, FL once. I loaned it to Caspian to display in their booth at the SHOT show.

It's been months since I shot the piece, took it out and ran some Wilson's "old geezer" ammo through it. It was quite fun shooting those reduced recoil ammo.
