I really didn't shoot it much after the modification and it just sat in the safe while I moved on to other interests.

I finally decided to give some attention to the SA and will have Brett perform the following:

Blended deluxe grip safety
Counter sunk slide release and detent
Carry bevel-dehorn
Checker front strap 25 lpi and undercut trigger guard
Smith and Alexander scalloped/blended magwell
Fit EGW bushing
Fit new EGW trigger
Novak cut front sight
Novak cut rear for EGW Silverline rear sight
Fit and tune new HD EGW extractor
Fit and tube single side EGW thumb safety
Blend rear of frame
Flush cut and crown barrel to bushing
Ball cut slide
Install Challis grip bushings
Blue entire gun with polished flats

Looking forward to this project when my turn in line finally comes.....

MV, I also really enjoy your build threads and your attention to detail. Have followed your posts here as well as the 1911 forums, keep up the impressive work!

Jason
Nice. I am sure it will look awesome.
Brett, do you do your own bluing?

While working on a reliability package on this gun the throating needed to be addressed. The throat was even with the ramp. The throat should be set back from the ramp.

Fixing it presented an interesting issue. First the ramp was minimum allowable but still in range for proper length. I couldn't make it longer without pushing it back meaning I'd have to push the barrel throat back which couldn't really be done without starting to get into an unsupported case issue. Used a few tricks I know and everything's good. Ended up with proper ramp to throats orientation and the chamber is still properly supported and within spec.

You had enough wiggle room with the barrel feet?

The feet were against the VIS. As I had done a fit barrel here also.

What wiggle room are you referring to?

Another recessed and beveled slide stop pin. One of the most common touches I get asked for.

Are you machine checkering or hand checkering? I know the setup for machine checkering is also no joke.

Machine checker. No way I'm doing hand checker anymore. Nightmare and in my opinion not worth it. Manual milling checkering with a hand file follow up makes the nice sharp points.

It's honestly probably the most stressful part of a build.

Always appreciate your work.

Probably because i haven't done all that much checkering, and if i bugger it up its only on my account....but i really do seem to enjoy checkering. Not sure if my hands like it as much as the rest of me does.

Took all the gap between the frame and MSH as well as any ability to move side to side and front to back out of this MSH/magwell. Next step is blend it then fit the grips to it so there is no day light.

Who needs Prozac when you can simply checker some front straps? and just so you don't think I take Prozac, my wife came up with that line when I told her that I was going to post in this thread... my line was going to be "what better way to spend an afternoon..."






Got it down to 4 hours flat today.

That's some kick *** lines! When I checker I have to lay all the lines first then gradually deepen them. It seem you can make that checkering file do precise lines.

You just have to "listen" to the file, since it cuts the lines that it uses to follow.

This is the fastest process I have discovered so far.

I only use the checkering file. No more V files.
When cutting horizontals, the contact area is small and many file teeth pass it on each stroke, so in about 1 hour and 20 minutes I cut all the horizontal lines to sharp points. Then, because the bulk of steel is already removed vertical lines are easier. Stay in one spot as long as it takes to get the few lines deep, then lean the file to the side and continue.

Took about 2 hours and 30 minutes to cut verticals because the contact area is long and only half of the file length is used.

Oh, and the file I was using is slightly bent, so when cutting verticals and using one side, only top and bottom would get nice deep lines, then I had to flip the file to the other side and deepen middles.

And yes, I made sure to true up the front strap first. You can see it was done in the picture with the horizontal jig on the deame.

Thank you and sorry for cluttering your thread. I was laughing at your comment (which was true) and since I needed to checker the front strap I thought it was good timing to respond with.

This may come under the heading of a stupid question, but here goes..... Is there a difference between machine and hand checkering? Do you have examples?

thanks

You will get lots of answers. Some will say machine checkering won't come out as sharp while some say hand checkering isn't as a precise. Like all things I t depends on whose doing the work and their attention to detail.

If I may, I have formed an opinion on this. I completely agree that it largely depends on who is doing the work and how much they rush. But... with hand checkering you are very limited, there is no way to stop checkering at the bottom, it is very labor (as in elbow grease) intensive, and in most cases you will have a hard time getting even results (termination) on both side edges of the frame (symmetry)

With machine checkering and a good machinist, it can't be beat once everything is setup. You have many more options, and the process can be started by making the the front strap truly radiused correctly. Then it is all the indexing plates and tooling. Still a lot of work, but the results I have seen simply cannot be matched by someone like me with hand checkering. On top of that you don't have to checker only. There are many treatments to choose from. My long term goal is to integrate grip stock texture (like diamondback VZ grips) into the front strap and rear strap continuously for a complete hand shreding, blood drawing, and generally painful and yet satisfying shooting exprrience. an even longer term goal is to learn engraving and do an engraved relief texturing. But that is far away.

I have seen the work of some pro hand checkerers (as in known for this stuff) and yes, their pyramids are impressive, lines are straight, but the termination at the bottom still lacks. As I said, certain things can't be avoided, so there are limits.

Just my 2 cents.

Nice blending. What gun is that? The fit seems to be better than usual.

Was it a new barrel replacement? Or was the overhang there to begin with?

Has to be a new barrel. Les would never let a pistol out with an overhang like that. At least I have never seen one like that.

I fitted a new barrel after a squib load caused a kaboom. The Les Baer barrel was poorly fitted with the lower lugs over cut allowing the slide to line up but also the barrel to downlink. The feet were over cut to the point they would break.
