That’s great especially 'Stress out for a day or so.", I read you there.

My wife is tolerant of me destroying a mug or two, I don’t know how she’d react to a ‘few’ slides … :face_with_spiral_eyes:

My buddy has is service glock engraved with his retirement date.

Looks great, thanks for the outline of the process.

Take care and post others…

1911 slide castings are 15-20 bucks on Sarco, need to block or smooth a little bit but good for practice. Can’t find Glock practice slides.

What make of laser? Diode or Co2

60 W JPT M7 from XT Laser
Using a very low setting though so about anything that can scan at 0.01 spacing would work.
