For maximum accuracy when tuning a 1911 auto, it is absolutely essential
that the barrel bushing supports the barrel securely so the barrel muzzle
cannot move when the slide is in the forward, or locked, position.
One of the most popular firearms ever produced is the 1911 Auto semiautomatic
pistol and it is one of the most frequently modified, altered and
repaired handguns in today’s market.
Fitting a new barrel, or an older barrel on which the lugs have been built
up by welding, can be a most demanding and precise operation. The Lugs
must be contoured to seat properly against the Slide Stop Pin when the
Slide is fully forward in the locked position.
Brownells 1911 Auto Slide Fitting Bars
were specifically designed to aid the gunsmith
in the fitting of the slide and
frame for maximum accuracy
and uniformity. For optimum
slide must fit the frame
snugly with no horizontal
or vertical movement.
The 1911 Auto Barrel Holder is a great aid in fitting a new barrel, or an
older barrel that has had the lugs built up to the slide stop pin by welding.
The Barrel Holder will secure the barrel in its proper position in the slide
when using a lug cutter or file to fit the lugs to the slide stop pin.
Brownells 1911 Auto Lug Iron was designed by noted gunsmith and author
Jerry Kuhnhausen and the gang at Brownells. This tool enables the pistolsmith
to quickly and easily remove burrs or raised metal near the locking
lug recesses inside the slide of Colt, 1911 Autos, and pistols of similar design.
Make absolutely certain that the pistol is UNLOADED. Remove the
Magazine and lock the Slide to the rear. Check the Barrel chamber to make
sure it is clear and that no ammunition is present.
