Wow - someone HAS been busy!
Good tho to see, judging by time needed - that you have been very careful and patient - IMO only way to go with such jobs.
The end results justify the hard labor. It's a good long time since I did a major project but well recall the beads of sweat as I tried to make perfection, remembering the old rule - what ya take off ya can't put back on

You got it Chris i swipe with file resharpie up and try fit again
As a repair man i use my hands all day but man are they sore after this I'm not used to working with this small of parts and the pressure's involved to hand fit the part
I'm sure someone who has done a lot more barrels could fit one fast but talk about tight lock up
So for now its down till i add a beavertail and all new fire control ambi safety etc etc

Looks good. Obvious that you took your time and did it right.
And yes, Sharpies are your friends. The time you take in prep pays off in the end. I have had to fit a few parts on some rebuilds that I have done so far, and you do have to take your time.
On a couple of knock around projects, I broke out the rulers and micrometers, and they still never came out right. Others, I just went by "feel", and in the end I was more pleased with the outcome.
Hope she shoots well. Looking for your report.
