How much does your lightened slide weigh?


Recommended Posts

And in doing a search first I only found two applicable threads and they both dealt with regular plain ol' 1911/2011 slides.

I am just curious as to what you all are getting your "rib caged" slides down to.

The weight can include the firing pin, the FP spring, the extractor, the firing pin stop and the sights...ya...know the parts that typically "reciprocate" when the gun is firing.

5" slide, Open Bianchi Cup gun (no sights) with firing pin & spring, fps, and extractor in place, no slide racker = 9.5 oz.

Racker adds .2 oz. = 9.7 oz.

Add spring plug ( it reciprocates too) and it goes up to 10.0 oz.
