Finally decided to pull the trigger on converting my old limited gun into an open steel gun for the fun of it. Ordered a couple new parts like slide, compensator, optic set up and we are now on our way.
I went ahead and ordered the ck slide and it is in spec. It is a tad loose on my old frame and debating whether or not to weld onto the rails to get a nice tight fit.
I will have to weld up the holes that are already in the frame from the thumb rest that was previously on the frame.
I will post pictures of my journey along the way as well as descriptions.
Cut the slide down .5", lighten to get slide under 10oz by tri-topping, internal lightening cuts, and thru slide cuts. I will also have to add serrations since I won't be adding a racker this go around.
