CUSTOM 1911 PHOTOS, CUSTOM 1911 PISTOLS, SLIDE LIGHTENING
---SLIDE LIGHTENING---
SLIDES LIGHTENED WILL CYCLE FASTER AND GIVES FASTER
SIGHT ACQUISITION. OPEN GUNS WITH COMPENSATORS OR
SLIDE MOUNTED SIGHTS BENEFIT THE MOST. IT ALLOWS THE
SLIDE TO CYCLE THE COMPLETE DISTANCE RATHER THAN
SHORT STROKING AND THE ROUND JUST BARELY HITTING THE
EJECTOR. THIS GIVES MORE RELIABLE EJECTION. YOU MAY BE
ABLE TO USE A HEAVIER RECOIL SPRING WHICH WILL STRIP THE
ROUNDS FROM THE MAG BETTER. YOU WILL SPEND LESS TIME
WITH THE MUZZLE FLIPPED UPWARDS. THE NEGATIVE SIDE IS
THAT YOU WILL FEEL A BIT MORE RECOIL SINCE THE SLIDE HAS
LESS WEIGHT TO ABSORB IT. BOTTOM LINE- FASTER CYCLING
AND LESS FLIP WITH A BIT MORE FELT RECOIL. MOST SLIDES
START OUT AT ABOUT 13 OUNCES BARE. OPEN GUNS RUNNING
170PF WILL BE A BIT SLUGGISH WHEN OVER 12OUNCES. SLIDES
10.5OZ. - 11OZ. ARE OK WITH MID SIZE COMPS.  SLIDES 10OZ. OR
LESS ALLOW USE OF THE MORE EFFICIENT COMPS.
