    Some years ago, a young woman hit a horse right in front of my shop, about 11:00 at night. I happened to still be in the shop and heard it. Your...

    I did try removing the recoil spring, the slide has no drag w/o it. Tried my cousin's BHP yesterday, and although it's stiffer than most of my...

    I have another method that's much better if you need more than one cam: Use a spin indexer in the vertical mill. You'll have a nice "handle" to hold...

    jdunmyer replied to a thread Browning Hi-Power in Gunsmithing
    I disassembled both the BHP and my Ruger SR1911, a M1911 type in 9mm, then weighed the slides. The BHP slide was 11 Oz, the SR1911 12, so not much...
