    I hope so. For some reason the pictures aren't showing up for me, just links that open a tab in my browser.

    I paid 4bills for a colt 1991 back in the 90's spent another 450 or so doing and paying chestnut mtn. To finish. Bought a RIA a few years back with same features. Guess what I'm carrying now?

    I *told* you guys this was going to be a very slow build...

    I stole the Storm Lake barrel and Briley bushing to put in my Norinco, which has the common "soft barrel" problem. I decided to set the 5" slide aside and take this opportunity to stretch the envelope a bit.

    By popular vote, I just purchased a stainless 6" long slide. It's a Para surplus from Sarco, $225, which is a pretty good price for a long slide. I'm not tremendously fond of the front serrations and I hope the roll marks can be removed without too much trouble; I really like the smooth look. The Para slide has different sight dovetails than my old one, of course, and it uses the larger-diameter "PXT" extractor, which will need a sleeve to work with a standard 1911 extractor. It's also set up for the Series 80 firing pin interlock bits. I don't find that objectionable, but I'll probably just go with the simpler old-school FCG bits.

    Sarco says the slide uses a standard 1911 spring plug. They listed a longer spring for the 6" slide for less than four bucks; I figured I'd use that to shoot the gun as a .45 before reaming it out to .460.
