Took me all afternoon, maybe 6 hours. Arm is still sore. must've taken several hundred cycles per grit before achieving that "grit used up" feeling. This is labor intensive so I can't help but wonder...

Yes, I think it's a combination of oil and too tight slide, I forgot to mention that I've already ruled out the mags. My RIA 1911 is quite a bit looser but the metal seems quite a bit softer and I'm...

Tight slide?

At the range with my new Springfield SS 1911-A1 optimized. I've always thought the slide was a bit tight but on at least two occasions I've seen the slide hang up for just a bit before closing. Seems...
