    I just couldn't make myself do that, but it doesn't look all that bad? I think!

    Guns are not meant to be pretty. If you want pretty buy some flowers. In my opinion some people don't need to own a firearm.

    At least deburr it while you're at it.
    And how would he know what the right spring is?
    Did you weigh the slide before and after?

    If anything polish the barrel and make the slide black again......

    It's a good first try. You'll never learn anything if you don't take risks like you just did. For that, I give you two thumbs up. I know that I don't have the wherewithal to do any experimentation so bold. If you keep this same spirit as you continue on the road to becoming a gunsmith, you will ultimately realize your dream. Don't give it up. The fact that you took such a risk with one of your own firearms demonstrates some real passion.

    That slide is after market. So I have the original slide with no modifications. Plus they have large stock of parts.

    I'll fine tune it later. Need to buy the some more tools. My dremmel bits are pretty worn form other projects. Also barrel is polished.

    I'll reserve judgement until you're done. The very next thing you should be doing is test firing it. I'm willing to bet that if the slide doesn't break the stock recoil spring will be just fine.

    I just figured his friends were too smart to loan him theirs. He's doing it right keeping the original slide. And if you're going to go buck nutty on a gun, this is the one to do it to.

    Mary has a "shoot first, ask questions later" policy, so we'd better make sure she knows we are coming!
