    That's a good idea.
    For those who do not have the means to machine a slide it is also easy enough to simply break the leading edge at the bottom of the breach face and polish that area of the slide.
    You can also gently polish the top of the disconnector but do not change the angles or the height.

    who'd you get to make that cut for you? Ive seen it before with some of Joe Chambers' work.

    I've stoned and polished my disco track, beveled the leading edge, polished the disco and checked it for OAL. I don't think I have any "problems". Also using the EGW ball head disco.

    Interesting. No ill-effect I can see. But, I wonder why SA didn't choose/think to do it?

    Ron,

    Never heard of Jay Crowder, although I know Bob has been doing a lot of training since I left about 18 months ago. Yes, I spent about 3.5 years with Bob learning how to build 1911's. It was a great experience and I am very fortunate to still be friends with him. He lives about 5 miles from me. Matter of fact, I was over there last night shooting the breeze.

    I will say it is interesting to see pics of the way other people interpret what Bob first taught me.

    As for the disco cut, it goes on every gun I build regardless of caliber, because it does make a difference.
