How much material can be removed off STI Slide


Recommended Posts

I have a design idea for an open gun I want to try out but I am concerned with removing too much material off the sides of the slide. Ideally I want to remove about .015 of material on each side of the slide, along the entire length. I am not intending to to go all the way down to the rails, and I planned on leaving the bottom .250 at the original dimension.

My primary concern is around the chamber and ejection port where the material is thinnest. Has any taken material out of these areas?

If my description of what is intended is not clear let me know and ill draw a picture.
