I've often wondered about ways to remove rear cocking serrations so that they can be re-cut....but they've never involved MIG welding. The guy who did this though....he let his curiosity get the best of him. Just beautimous...
That's why you either use a TIG Welder, or take it to a shop that has a Laser Weld. Mig welding is for monkeys, I've got 36yrs. in the welding field, I've welded everything from High Pressure Natural Gas Pipelines, to High Pressure Steam Lines, and a few exotic metals, 90% Chrome, Titanium, Inkinel ect... who ever did that needs to go back and learn what to do, rather than what not to do. Good luck on fixing that slide.
I did see that slide for sale. I can't imagine destroying a slide like that. Not even a good paper weight IMHO. If you try to make something out of it keep us posted. I was looking for a cheep slide cause I have a unusable frame and I want to make a tap handle. I think that slide may be permanitly out of service
