BN91205 Posted February 9, 2008 Share Posted February 9, 2008 (edited) Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and want to thank everyone first off for all the great information provided. I have been gunsmithing my own 1911's for 3 years now - yes, I'm still a rookie. Gone through lots of trial and error and for the first year, but now my pistols are performing solidly (for me anyways). I am now interested in building an "open-class" Steel Challenge gun. For those who own or have knowledge of these types of pistols, I would like to know what many of you have found to be an ideal slide weight for proper cycling using lighter ammunition 115gr. @ 1050-1100fps (120-125PF). The conversion will be done on a Springfield Gov't 9x19. A close friend owns a machine shop that I have unlimited access to so I figured I would take a little off at a time, but a starting point would sure help. Thanks again for all the information, I look forward to reading your reccomendations. Regards, Brian Edited February 9, 2008 by BN91205 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
