    Regarding my last post #60 Please ignore as I am unable to edit that post.

    The Slide stop hole is .200. The height gauge arrived this morning so I am pretty confident with this simple reading test. The slide stop to top of the rail is .436 and not .450 -.005 (per Receiver drawing Sheet 18).
    That accounts for my discrepancy. Plus, I think, my disconnector may need some adjustment as well as it will sit too proud.



    I hope I got it finally right.

    So this is a 2011? That could be a different animal entirely spec-wise from a 1911.

    True. I am not at odds with the spec. I just now know what to expect.

    At least, until I get the next part done. I 'm moving onto the Extractor and firing pin. Let's see what I find there. Heh-heh.

    Gadzooks!!!

    After seeing that last image, I don't think there's any reason to believe any of the Ordnance specs for the M1911A1 would apply to that gun. And it would be a mistake to think they did and then try to get that gun to meet any of those published 1911 specs.

    And all along I assumed it was some sort of 1911. You're in uncharted waters with this thing. Lotsa luck!

    That's a bit harsh... the parts in this gun that definitely do NOT conform to the 1911 specs, are:

    grips
    magazine
    magazine release
    trigger
    ejector roll pin (for some reason it's a tad larger in diameter, no idea why)
    mainspring housing
    mainspring housing pin
    frame (I nearly forgot that one)

    Everything else ( ) is basic 1911. Well... except for the fact that nearly all of them have Wilson/Nowlin-spec ramped barrels.
    Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.
