    Just spitballing thoughts.....
    I never use tape to protect a slide from my vise jaws. I have found it reduces the rigidity of the hold. With nice ground and hardened jaws there is no need.
    Sometimes I use thin cardstock, like a thin business card to protect a finely polished slide.

    I did the flat firing pin stop, and delayed the unlocking the only place I had an issue was from slide stop drop. The gun ran perfectly on full cycle.. Ran 150 rounds before it went to finish. And my last 10mm come off without a hitch. However this one took several small tweaks to get rid of a problem. Again some of it ended up contributed to the Ammo..

    This stuff is pretty grippy. But the card stock sounds like a good idea as well. Thanks Chuck..

    Grippy is good.
    It's the 'gooey' I don't like.
    The adhesive acts like a rubber cushion and brings on some 'vibration?'.
    I like the feel of steel on steel on 2000lbs of cast iron.

    I get ya with the gooey too. This is actually a vinyl painters tape. I got it to tape off when bead blasting if I didn't want to get in to the flats too much and decided to try it for milling. It sticks pretty well but releases pretty well. But, I'll definitely defer to the experience last thing I want is to ruin a slide or wear it upside my head lol..

    I'm not saying it compromises the hold.
    I was thinking more of the effect on end mills and surface finish.

    Steve,
    They vary.
    Don't use those figures. They are specific to that particular cutter.
    Do a test cut on a piece of aluminum first.

I do think rigidity might of suffered a little given the way the cuts look. Even with using cutting oil. But, Nothing that won't clean up.

    Hidden Bomar accomplished all but drilling and tapping the two holes. I think I'll do that tomorrow getting a little tired a feeling a little clumsy. Now is not the time to screw this one up. Lol... 9A677DCF-FC3B-406B-8F27-452600FAA256.jpeg 1ADFD4BE-00D3-4EC2-84E9-97F8EED50E54.jpeg 9C8CCA0D-2F72-48AB-B9CC-C68F36FE35B6.jpeg

    I'm usually a fixed rear sight guy but that looks very nice.

    Very sleek and streamline, no ugly dovetail cuts. Once mounted will look like it's part of the slide.. I always like the rear adjustables, just never cared much for the looks of them...

    So am I, the First RO (45acp) I bought has adjustable. I have to work when shooting it. The size and shape of the rear sights throw me off.

    Rear sight looks great, flows nicely with the slide. It should make for a very accurate shooter. Sight picture and bore axis will be very close. Rear adjustable is the only way to go especially if you are a 6 o’clock hold shooter like I am. LOL I’m starting to get excited.

    Easy, create a YouTube channel, if you have a gmail email account it's basically right there ready to be used. Uploading a video, from your phone, it's very easy. Then you can paste the YouTube link here.

    Flat top will make it look even more sleek, but I'm currently questioning how wide/deep I want to go here. Kicking it around and gonna take a few measurements here soon. I know we talked about 7 lines, but might want to stick with the 5 hmmm..

    Triple tap? That's the Mozambique. I do it coming out of the holster.
