The problem I have is that I know of no reputable gunsmiths in my area and I don't want to ship it just for this.
I've done plenty of work on 1911's in the past and if all is right with this I should be able to handle it.
I looked at the inside of the frame and it is countersunk and the legs of the tube should be ok as long as there is pressure on the tube pushing it into the frame.
If not I wasted forty dollars on a staking tool and will have to either get another tube or find a smith.
