Limited gun slide lightening

Recommended Posts

I'm going to be doing some milling on my RIA Double stack 9mm and got to thinking of lightening the rear portion of the slide, like an open gun or RMR type cut. I believe it will give the most benefit to recoil reduction( I know it's only 9mm!!), and be more balanced weight wise. Now my thought is to make a billet aluminum plate to mount the rear sight, much like a red dot adapter plate, really need to do some hard measuring but looks like the meat is there to make it happen. Looking for any insight y'all might have, or if anyone has seen or heard or might even have pics of such a thing. Pic is what I'm talking about cutting out behind the ejection port.

Adam of Atlas Gunworks typically does an ugly scoop behind the breech face, but this one is pretty damn sexy!

 

His typical cut:

I’m sorry but that last one is an abomination.

Not too sure about that bull thing, But check out how deep SV buries the rear sight in the slide

I like scoop. I can put my knuckle in there and rack the slide. I used to use the rear sight to rack my Tac Sport so it was an easy swap for me.

Ya, that's something there, so at least I'm on the right track. Seems like this might be an interesting setup with a sightblock or island barrel.

Ya, I guess I just want to remove as much steel as possible, or that is my thinking anyway.

I think that one does have a sightblock

Upon closer inspection I think your right!!

 

Well I have chickened out so far and just tri-topped it and reworked the cocking serrations. Gonna take some more figuring to achieve what I want, and I wanted to shoot this weekend so it will have to happen later.

Looks awesome so far. What slide fixture is that? Post more pics when done.

Been shootin to much to do any more than you see there, haven't even coated it yet. The slide fixture is one I made from a panhard bar mount for a dirt latemodel, my former job was crew chief for a race team. I like using stuff I got laying around and it was a good project to get used to operating the mill.
