Used top end on a new 2011 frame


Recommended Posts

So I have a few questions about a new build I'm putting together. If I buy a complete upper that is slightly used (barrel and slide already fit), will it:

1. require any fitting of the lower lugs?


2. possibly require different length barrel links?

This is going to be a standard LDC dustcover .40 caliber limited gun.

Thanks in advance for any advice, info, or sharing of your experiences with this matter!

1. Maybe

2. Maybe

It'll be better to start with new parts.

That used top end may fit but might be a loose fit to the frame.

If you're lucky, the slide may still need to be machined to fit
