thanks for the heads up poink88. i didnt hear that it was easy just alot more due able than the ruger. and yes i had planed on watching a few videos 1st.

gonna have to wait until next weekend to shoot it. can for sure post about my experience at the range but pics i dont know about. i got pics from the last two times with the 1911 and was forced to load a whole new OS on my computer and it is beating me at the moment. buddy of mine will be coming by to train me this weekend some.

The most difficult part for me is removing the spring and guide rod. Since the plastic bushing is tight and need to slide up at the same time as the firing pin assembly in my gun. I might see if I can modify that so the guide rod can pivot on it.

I ground and polished the "cocking ramp" located on the slide, especially the end part that first contacts the sear. For me that part came very rough, uneven, and in wrong angle so I rounded it up a bit.

I also rounded the outside edges of the slide since my gun is very difficult to cock and sometimes cuts me. I sanded those a bit and (cold) re-blued. I hope the spring/cocking becomes lighter with use.

Other than those, I find my Buckmark perfect.

Good luck!
Just pick up one of these. Problem solved.

Thanks!!! Good idea and I'll "borrow" it and make one with just the part for the slide assembly removal. It looks very simple.
