I'm new to SS, and I just bought the pics below for this division. While showing it off, I would like to get some clarification on these rules. I see a lot of 3 sided slides, and customization, Will the HP cut up front keep me out of the game?

Honestly, I never thought about an HP cut nor do I recall anyone asking about it as it may relate to SS rules. Good question. I'm guessing the HP cut will fall under:

18. Permitted modifications are those of a cosmetic nature (e.g. custom grip panels, scrimshaw or similar surface

engravings, checkering or serrations etc.), replacement single or ambidextrous thumb safeties, and any open

sights (which may be embedded into the slide).

Specifically, the "cosmetic" part.

Nice piece BTW....

I'd think section 17's bit prohibiting slide lightening would rule out the HP cut as well as the milled trough in the top of the slide in the 1911 pictured above. Otherwise, folks could lighten the heck out of their slides and call it "cosmetic."

I think it would be prudent for 818 to send a query to Amidon for an opinion on the HP cut. I think one is as cosmetic as front serrations but that's only my opinion.

I didn't see the trough you mention. Were you referring to 818's pics? I only saw a flat top which is allowed (as are tri-tops) and normal serrations. I've seen an actual trough milled into the top of a slide using a ball end mill on limited guns.

Regarding the trough, I was thinking of tpcdvc's pics.

"Milling of the slide to insert sights, add or remove serrations, such as cocking or flat topping, tri-topping the slide, lower- ing ejection ports, cuts that are minor and cosmetic in nature are permitted. Duplicating features that are on a factory, mass produced slide available to the gen- eral public is permitted. Cuts that are designed to specifically or significantly lighten the slide, such as holes, or slots, are ruled as competitive advantage and prohibited."

The ball cuts or "trough cuts" are only .015 deep and did not even register a difference on my postal scale before and after. I think that would be the very definition of "minor and cosmetic". I guess an ignorant RO could try to bump you to open, but that is an arbitration that I would pay for in a second.

The wife's Spartan. Magnesium on top, Graphite Black on the bottom. We thinned out the front strap, reblended the beaver tail, added slim VZ's, added a Koenig hammer, and did a 2# trigger job. So far, she's happy with it. So happy, she's forgotten the $6k I've dropped on other guns!
