Glocks should be neutered, . . . and retro-fitted for 10 oz of water, . . . and relegated to squirt gun competition.

Thumbs down

Save yer money and DO NOT buy the Sarco kit! I bought a few of their kits years ago and simply would not ~ could not use some of the parts. These were supposedly from stripped down Brazillian military 1911A1's. But the parts were an odd mix of foreign military (I think) , and assorted cheap commercial in both blue and stainless.

Two of the slides were very good. They were ex-Brazillian military , made by Imbel/Itajuba , which are the same slides provided to Springfield Inc. Others had no markings at all and were very thick. Sounded cast when I tapped them. The barrels were new "Roto-something" and they also looked like the ones Numrich used to sell and use in their Auto-Ordnance pistols. Some grips screws were buggered parkerized , others were new blued , but the heads all had different heights. 2 grip screw bushings were blue , 2 were stainless. Slide stop had a weird checkering , and the thumb safety looked like a real hack with a Dremel tried to fit it. Trigger was a 3-hole aluminum. Barrel bushing was blue but way too big for barrel. Tab looked filed. Sear and disconnector were junk. Pins were assorted blue , park'd and stainless.

It really looked like a bunch of parts from a junk drawer.

I am really careful what I get from Sarco
Some of their stuff is iffy and imported from who knows where

I just had this debate with myself a short time ago and decided to buy a RIA for a beat around truck gun and build a better unit with Wilson or other high end maker components

Thanks from MemphisMachinists

What kind of drill bit do you prefer for skulls? And what RPM?

Something small and fast (1/4") or a more manly 2" hole saw?

Hole saw please. About 650 RPM please remove the pilot bit first.

Yea they have burned me a couple of times. One slide barrel and mag for a Browning 1903 turned out to be Huskavarna. Firing pin for a HSC was BS that I couldn't use, but I have had some good luck with them as well. I am in no hurry.

If I needed to drill I would use the one with really coarse teeth to tangle and pull all that pesky hair from the excavation area

I've been to Sarco's old place in NJ , and at their new place in PA. The only way I'll ever buy something is to go there and look at it first.

I have tried a couple of slides on the new frame. No problem. I bought a blemished slide on eBay from an outfit called Heavy Armor Division. It looks cool and is cerakoted tungsten. It looks grey in the picture. I have sent them a message to see if I can get a barrel and a few other parts at the same time to save shipping.

I've looked at their postings before. Hard to tell if they are remsport or armscor.

I guess you mean they get their parts from these folks. The website looks like they are a small custom shop. They don't even list a lot of parts for sale. I plan to give them a call tomorrow.
