    I’ve got this slide sitting in my parts box that my granddad had on his GI 1911. I found the original Ithaca slide in his parts stash. This was obviously one he bought somewhere along the line and had cut for bomar’s rather than ruining the original slide (thank goodness!). Simple question. Does this have any value? And if it does how much? Thanks.

    Holler if you want to sell. I have 4 frames to build and zero slides

    Check with W Cutrer. Just sent him three Argentine "Colt Systema" slides. 'Pretty sure he only needs two.

    Cool thanks. I've come to a couple realizations. First, I will not be able to afford Series 70 or older Colts for these projects. Second, I've now seen enough slides either squeezed or lapped to custom fit that I don't need a vintage Colt to build a fine pistol.
