    Anything tricky about installing a different 1911 slide release?

    I'm guessing that they do not require fitting?

    I've had to trim them down to keep bullet noses from rubbing on them during feeding.

    Don't forget that your barrel link hinges on the slide release pin. That fit needs to be precise also.

    Yes you will have to fit them if you are using a new aftermarket part.

    Seems weird to me, working on a new Les Baer with the 1.5" 50 yard guarantee. OEM slide release is such a loose fit on the oem barrel link that you can actually see light through the hole in the link with the pin pushed through it.

    Appreciate the replies, was hoping the Jerry Kuhnhausen book had a slide release for dummies section but apparently not.

    Ever seen a 'here's how you do it" thing on you-tube or equivalent?

    The pin will not be all that tight in the actual link hole. Not sloppy either. The pin actually registers on the ramp to put the barrel into lock up.

    What CM said^^^^^^

    Its not important that the slide stop be tight in link hole. Whatís important is that the lower lugs are tight on the slide stop at lockup. I would measure old and new pin diameters with a micrometer accurate to tenths. Those pistols are generally fit so tight that half a thou bigger might cause u lockup issues.

    Do you want to change it because you think somethings wrong or you just like the style of a different mfg's part?

    9mm gun, on occasion the magazine followers (3 different brands) can end up wedged between the slide release and the frame. It appears that I have a 45 slide release in a 9mm gun.
