If you add that, you may have to figure out if the current recoil spring rate is correct.
Crossed my mind-
Kind of looking forward to maybe tweeking this or that -
Dont have a winter project & will have almost 10 days off starting Friday

play the victim, be the victim
Pretty pleased with fit & finish-
Snug fit with no fitting
Prettier than my slide finish
Bad weather but i'll let you know when i get to shoot it

Thought i'd post a pic of it pretty much complete-
Thinking hard on completely reblueing to match everything up
I love this ole gun- Best part is NO BILLBOARD
Shoots great with the same recoil spring & it DID solve the "pitch" of the muzzel blast Muzzel jump was reduced for another plus-

Have you shot it yet? It looks fine as it is, but that's personal preference. I think the only way you'll make a perfect match its to strip and blue everything, frame, slide, and compensator. The gun doesn't quite look like its due for a refinish, so its up to you if you want to do it.

Yes, shot it yesterday - mission was successfull
Thanks, it looks fine but due to several added parts it'd a bit "multi-colored" & the original finish is 40+ yrs old - Has a few battle scars also-
Going to "semi-retire" 1st of year so i'll be needin "projects"

So I take it that it didn't hurt your ears the way it did before? That's great, I'm glad it worked out for you. Personally, I kind of like a bit of a frankenstein look. That's part if the reason I'd like to build a rat rod bike.

I just like things a little different - personal touches as it were
