Hi all...

I’m thinking through the potential of a project gun there is the possibility of receiver lines or parts of a receiver to be off for one reason or other, such as weakerareas on the receiver. Here’s my question:

Do you rule out or spend some time straightening receivers with slight imperfections on dust covers?

Thanks... X

We are talking a 1911 here, right?

Got any pictures or special concerns?

We are. My concerns / curiousness is whether a receiver’s more vulnerable areas (dust cover in particular) is worth straightening or correcting on a project or rebuild gun?

Depends.
Do you want it to look nice or just function or compete with a BEC build?

For a project, I’d like it to have clean lines, flat flats, functional+, but I don’t expect it’ll compete with you, Lou, Greg, Jason, Dustin, etc. unless someone welds / preps rails and works a dust cover for me.
