    Hey, guys. I've seen several posts that reference cutting the slide stop to make it easier to insert and avoid the idiot scratch. Is this work something that has to be done with access to the complete pistol, or can a slide stop be sent in without the gun? Who does this work, and what does it...

    I got an Ed Brown slide stop for my Springfield frame and the radius around the junction of the ss pin is too thick to allow the slide stop to function.

    How does a properly equipped professional shorten and bevel a slide stop...well, shorten I get, actually, just making the bevel even and the angle you want? How about a non-pro? I would think it would be hard to hold the stop on a grinding wheel and rotate it evenly, there must be some sort of...
