1911 Lower Lug Cutter

Recommended Posts

I’m wondering if anyone around Nashville has the Brownell’s or Wilson lower lug cutter kit they’d be willing to rent?  I can get a gunsmith to do this easy enough, but I’d really like this to be a “I did this” project more than a “I paid for this”. I’d rather not buy the tools since this will probably be the only barrel fit I get myself into.

A 7/32" chainsaw file is pretty close to the nominal .200" slidestop diameter, if you need to do some filing.  I like to fit my barrels tight, so there is always some hand work that needs to be done after the lug cutter to allow the barrel to go into battery.  I also like to start with a .195" slidestop so that I can swap in a larger pinned part if the lockup ever loosens up.
