    This pistol will be a 9mm shooter... a range dog if you will... Ron


    I'm 99% certain I'll be doing a heavy weight, railed, laser fitted (green outdoor), stainless frame, no beavertail cut, no slide to frame fitting and a standard non-ramped barrel configuration,

    6" stainless longeslide with classic slanted rear serrations. No front radius... square nose, Bomar rear cur and a Novak front cut

    This will be the first round of part ordering.. So here is a pool

    Thanks Ron

    Ramp so you know the feed angle will be correct.

    3 to 1 for a ramped barrel. Jay told me it wasn't needed as he could take care of it... Ron// This is a FMJ only range/bullseye pistol.. Ron

    It costs a lot more to fit and buy a ramped barred as welll.. I can see the benefit from a engineering (sort-a like a FLGR), but none of my 45's have ramped barrels... Ron

    The 9mm ramp angles are different than that of a .45acp, so you may get feeding issues when you use a 9mm on a 45 ramp.

    Like quack said, it's a different angle, thus my original suggestion for the ramp. This is regardless if it will feed JHP or FMJ.

    Jay re-cuts the ramp on most all my pistols.. The frame can be ordered with a 38s ramp and jay will fine tune from there.. Not necessarily regardless of the type of ammo either. FMJ (Conture) will most always be easier to feed. I like ramped barrels, but jay has a point.. Probably will add $150 to the cost of the pistol and it's not a defense pistol. We'll see.. It can always be added as well, but not taken away.. Ron

    In a 9mm 1911 I'd prefer to use a ramped bbl. It would facilitate multi-caliber versatility. (9x19, 9x23, 38Super)

    Excellent, I hadn't considered that added value. Caspian makes some 6" centric small parts as well. I might try them out.. Thanks ,, Ron

    Seems like a ramped barrel is easier to come by as well.. Jay will take care of the feed angle. so I'm not sweating that.. Ron

    If it were me I'd want it to feed everything. Even if it's a range gun for now that could change and there's always the possibility of wanting to sell or trade later.

    From what I have read, I hear you should use a ramped barrel for 9mm. Of course, this is just regurgitated information. So, take it for what it is worth.
