Anyone have any tricks for fitting slide to frame without investing in a whole set of slide fitting bars ?

quick & dirty is peening the slide rails with a hammer.

frame to slide fit is <5% of what the gun's accuracy is.

Mine has very slight vertical movement on the muzzle end.Is it worth trying to tighten or should I leave it as is ?

you should really check out 1911forum.com or m1911forum.org. much better places for 1911 inquiries. many more knowledgeable people on there than glocktalk when it comes to 1911's.

he was looking for how to do it without buying fitting bars, the only way that i know of is peening/swaging.
other ways are welding up the rails & milling them down, having Accu-rails installed or tightening using fitting bars.
he has a mil-spec, and not a bullseye gun, so there are other things that he can do to improve accuracy before tightening up the slide.


edit: to save him the search.

Yes, this. If this is about accuracy and reliability, don't. The "tight" race guns and competition shooters shoot well for competition, but have all sorts of problems if being used as carry guns.

Of course I agree. It's more the final barrel to slide lockup.

I say leave it be,......Me too. In reading posts by top gunsmiths, one of the major reasons for guns failing, is people screwing around with them.

Especially the "Dremel Dummies". :supergrin:

1911s require the right tools to make them run right.
