    Post1911 GI 1911 slide dovetail to novac?

    anybody roll their own novac dovetail from a GI slide?

    a novac is .495 x65 deg and a GI dovetail is .330x65deg

    so it would only take out about .165???


    now i got my triangle bastard file all at the ready!!--LOL!

    yea i know your gonna say mill this send off that--

    but hey this is a in house budget job! non-union and all that --

    the slide is stock GI depth --i'm guessing about .0900" --my eyes suck at up close things early in the day!--

    No, the Novak sight, what is the distance from the bottom of the dovetail to the underside of the sight?

    Well, ya need to know that dimension. If the dovetail is deeper than stock, you're going to need the proper dovetail cutter and a mill.
