I was reading the tutorial on the ACE site and it says to use a "letter C" drill bit to determine the distance between the lower rails and upper ones... heres my question, all my bits are in inches, not numbers...can I use one that is almost exactly similar in size to the letter C bit? I'm really hoping to get my rails done today and I dont feel like going to the hardware store to get something I might already have. Thanks!

time will tell

Thanks for the reply Co7t, was very helpful. Lately I've been tring to keep everything to an exact science with 1000's of an inch measurments and all, but instead tonight I'll just see how they fit without the drill bit method, tighten em down and mig it up. ...I cant find where I put my digital caliper anyway! also, was reading your step by step instructions for the 1911 frames a few weeks ago and now I cant wait to start on one myself. I hope I can get the rails done w/out f n the whole frame up though, the first time.

No problem - ask any time and someone is sure to help you with the information you need pretty quickly. Let us know when you're ready to do your 1911, those who've done them will be glad to help you out as you go.
