    Not so, I'm afraid. Only the firing pin bore is 0°24' from the rails. The breech face is 89°8' from the rails (or 0°52' from the "vertical") as shown above the ejection port in View S on Sheet 2 of the Ordnance blueprint.

If there is any interest I could update here too. I have been working on it couple hrs per night for 3 weeks. Thanks for looking. Attachment 98221Attachment 98222Attachment 98223Attachment 98224
    Maybe a link to the thread? It costs $10 to join the forum and its a big forum, takes a long time to find the thread. I havent found it yet
    I'm specifically interested in how you cut the barrel engagement lug slots in the top of the frame? I too am going to try and build a 1911 from stock in 7075. I figure it's strong enough, It's very inexpensive and its more easily worked than steel. I have to wait till payday to order the bar stock and the wait is killing me.
