I was wondering if anyone here does work on someone else's 1911, or do you just work your own custom jobs?
I need a SA slide worked on. I could send it to Novak to have them dovetail it, but then I was thinking of having the slide flats milled to remove the stampings, which I'll assume is going to mean I need new rear serrations. Or maybe I can cut those back in with a file...

Anyway, rather than Google 1911 machinists, I thought I'd ask here first.

I'll take the lack of "I take on outside work" to mean the professional smiths here just work on your own projects, or start to finish builds.
Shipped off to Novak this morning.

Of course, they didn't sound none too happy to machine the dovetails either.
"Do you want us to install the sights?"
No, I'll do the final fitting.
"Are they our sights?"
No... I wish they were Novak sights, but you folks don't make tall sights for suppressed 1911's.
"Well we can't guaranty they'll fit."
Well, the sights are for a Novak cut slide. If you do your part they should be close enough for me to fit.
"OK, but we can't guaranty our work."

Geez, lol.

Problem is, there is a Novak cut and Novak sights- most of the aftermarket sights for this cut are NOT the same dimensions as genuine Novak sights.
There are fairly significant differences in dovetail width and depth.
You really need to have the sights "on hand" and measure them to properly machine a slide to fit them.

How are you going to fit your "other brand" sights if they measure smaller than the nominal Novak dovetails?

Just to update, as I'm finally getting some response on doing the machining, the work has been done.
Heinie's sights (with the Novak cut) and Novak's machining worked perfectly. Just need to blue it when I get around to it.
