    If you stake it that's the way the MFG finds and maintains zero on site to bore alignment. If you pin it make sure the pin does not interfere with the barrel bushing. If you look its obvious what I am referring to.

    I have a pusher that Kimber marketed that does both front and rear. No fan of that Marque and I am sure it is only badged but it works.

    If you have a novak front and rear cut you don't need a staker then. The hole in the front sight is just for a small roll pin that you could tap into the slide if there's a hole in your slide too. Dovetail sights don't get staked, you're good.

    Thanks, gents! Good info. Getting close. Still need to fit the mag catch. Then, at some point, need to get to a range and see if this thing will run.

    Took it to the range today. It cycled and shot well. 1 Failure-to-feed on 50 rounds. It was a great feeling running a weapon for which I've held every single individual part in my hand. Difficult to describe it, but man, it was gratifying!

    I understand that it is your professional opinion that I need to take this to the range regularly and put prodigious amounts of ammunition through it to break it in. I will break the difficult news to my wife...
