  • Adding material

    Adding material to fit new parts.

    410L frame and slide. 309L added to the grip safety (it's a steel part and I know 309 and mild steel get along quite well, stainless won't take the black oxide but that part is hidden)

    Added a little material at a time. Let sit until cool to the touch and repeat.

    Low dollar item, so the gamble wasn't detrimental

    The hardest part was determining the base material initially. Then requested a smaple of 410L from Washington Alloy.

    This project that has continued over the past 7 years. Every now and then I decided to make another change.

          Thanks for the writeup and pictorial! What new parts are you fitting? I'm just an armorer, no gunsmith, but love working on them.

            The first picture was for a low profile Novak rear and the second third and fourth are for a new grip safety

                  I dont think so. I have seen the welds that you made and posted up for everyone to see!

                    what I shared wasn't "welding"

                      I have no idea what they were saying in the video, but you put the smack down on that dude.

                      But may I suggest a side arm with a bit narrower of a grip for your tiny hands?

                        Yeah, I agree. It was more like trying to glue something to a firearm that should not be glued!

                          smawgmaw You sound knowledgeable with the aesthetics of welding. Would you be willing to share what process and set-up you'd prepare to make a better appearing "weld"?

                            I get the purpose of the slide build up, but what’s the purpose of building up in the top of the beaver tail on the frame?

                              to create a proper transition from the frame horns to the GS
