No 'theory' about it. Just time and effort.

Hello and thank you for the valuable information,.....But what about the barrel not being driven into battery by the barrel guide blocks? (how the original 1911 pushed the barrel into battery).
It looks like the slide/barrel guide blocks where intentionally left off the slide?

Why and what is the advantage?

Does the breechface push the barrel hood (like match barrels) on the pistol shown in the first photos because the guide blocks are missing?

The guide blocks also centers the cartrige on the breechface.......here is a great image that niemi24s from M1911.org made that shows how the cartridge is alligned between the extractor wall and guide block:

Interesting post.....thanks.....but it looks like the slide is scrap to me...

Eric,
There is NOTHING unusual about that slide.
Or about you disrespecting an accomplished smith.

I stand corrected, it's a PHD class in Ejector application, construction, and repair. :D

Great post to both Bob and Chuck.
This appears to be an issue that is becoming more and more prevalent. It's a shame that manufacturers with modern CNC machines can't machine a slide to the original specs. Oh well, I guess that keeps us in business. :D

Wow, You really need to look at that picture again. Closely.

Not only do you do Bob a disrespect, The drawing you put up fails to take into account the role the barrel plays in also centering the cartridge.

I,too, am trying out a couple of Barry's ejectors. Quite a nice part.

Just one more aspect of a high quality gun. Thanks guys.
I looked at mine and the 9mm I have brought up some questions.

This is yet another example of what makes this forum a huge leap above the rest. Packed full of super information. The "real deal."

Good stuff, Chuck. Thank you for fleshing this out with additional information.

Eric,

Your assumption about the "guide blocks" is....well, you're wrong.
Again.
I would assume you're speaking of the third photo. The breech face is dirty, NOT altered. Minus the dirt, the breech face configuration is virtually the same as the clean one in the bottom photo.

And Eric,

If you'd like to discuss my methods, feel free to post to the thread or PM me directly. Discuss, not debate. I lack the time and you certainly lack the experience.

Notice that this response is directly to you, not to a third party. :roll:
