    Where can I get instructions (with pictures) on how to fit an aftermarket ramped barrel?

    (See Tango, I can read)

    If you are going to fit it in a standard, non ramped 1911, the frame needs machining for the ramped barrel. If you don't have a frame holding fixture, a milling machine, experience and other appropriate tooling, take it to a good gunsmith who does this type of work on a regular basis. If your frame is already set-up for a ramped barrel, fitting is no different than fitting a standard barrel.

    The reason I asked for ramped barrel, I purchased parts for a Para Ord Single stack Super Hawg. I have the Clark Ramped 6" barrel (Para will not sell the original type barrel even on special order from Brownells.) Frame is already set up for ramped barrel and Clark is ramped. I fitted hood area, but it still will not cycle or close completely. I believe it is the link lug area.

    Thanks.
