After 150 years on the bottom I figured it deserved a little action!

Next: 1911 frames and slides cut from Bismark hull plates! :-)

Sharkbeast, Where we're going, we don't need Sights!!

But a red dot will attach to the holes in the dustcover seen in the bottom pic

I think the shootists ejection port could clear cinder blocks. How far is the bottom of the port from the bottom of the slide?

Really interesting to see. I was always under the misimpression that a carry comp involved cutting down the slide.

Most carry comps are built on Commander or Officer slides with a 3/4" single chamber comp to bring it to standard length or commander length.

I've actually been wanting to do a carry comp with an officer slide on a double stack frame.

Wow. I hope this thread continues on as strongly as it started out. I just don't know what I'm going to do with myself. This is like a combination of pornography and mechanical Einstein.

"Neat! Is that a gage pin or some fixturing in the top pistol with the Chin housing?"
No. I use a couple of gage pins to prevent any possible frame distortion as I remachine
the feed ramp.



And a welded Norc! You buy a TIG? Interesting.....
No. The welding was done by Jim Milks of Innovative Custom Weaponry.


Ok, work over the past few days.

Welded up frame rails.





Machining to fit the slide.



Oversized firing pin stop was fit to max dimensions for this slide.
There was still a .005" gap with the extractors.

.005" won't affect function, but it will mess up alignment of a rear of slide texture.

Silver-solder is not meant to be a filler, nor is it suitable for a wear area.
But it's just fine for building up the bottom of the extractor slot.

Enlarging the ejector slot in the slide to enhance reliability.



Machining a custom, oversized ejector to fit the altered slide channel.





Selecting the 'right' beavertail.



Sticking on the Chen magwell. The magwell was shortened by .050" to .250" tall.
The original was .300" tall.







I trued up the mainspring housing and frame for some wraparound
golfballing.

I know it's not even similar, but somehow the conamyds (right name?) by Ned Christiansen come to mind.

Sorry about the fractured bit, Chuck. Even your accidents look great.

Fixed!



Reminds me a bit of the motto of a small aerospace prototype shop I was familiar with years ago:
"We make 'em nice, cause we make 'em twice."

You sure you didn't just turn up the heat in the shop to make those go away?

In this case, we know the gun was excited and had been run in cold weather.

Also, if that had been my guy, I would probably have asked you leave it with the nipply treatment. Gives it a unique flair.

Chuck, I enjoy watching your perfection in craftsmanship. Your machining skills are second to none.

When I first saw the dimpled golf balls I though you created a new pattern. They are always changing the patterns on golf balls to get longer distances.

Keep up the good work.

Pistolwrench- I wish I was 15 years old and lived next door to your shop so I could sweep the floors and learn something. Awesome stuff, thanks for sharing.
