Got the upper lugs and barrel fitting in the slide the way I want them to, so I slid it onto the frame and tried a few gauge pins in the slide stop bore until it locked up tight. Looks like a 175” pin is it, so now I have a pretty good idea of what needs to be removed (right around .025") from the lower lugs to fit a .200” Slide Stop.

Apparently, I neglected to order a Slide Stop, so I’ll get fitting it once I have one here.

Operating machines is perfectly safe......until you forget how dangerous it really is!
