    Yeah, but its got better lines than the Glock, and fits the hand better too. That whole decocker thing is a little nerve racking.

    Bruce - just remember - metal removed is metal gone, for good!

    I very fine needle file can work - preferable if used as a draw file - thus leaving no severe marks. Another option if you have the patience is, apart from good small Arkansas stone - is make small hardword formers and super glue small sections of 600 grit or even 1000 grit emery paper - that will remove sharp, almost more by polishing effect then excessive metal removal. Slow but sure.

    One thing about SIG's <cough> haven't found any sharp edges as yet!

    Bruce? how about going, or checking the Phone book for Hardware store that carry machinist tools? Look for a De-Burring tool...It's a hand tool that machinists use to break the edges on metal..

    That's another thought Bob but - I'd add a caution - all deburr tools I have and have used, can still take an uneven cut if not careful. Particularly as we are talking some straight runs as against like deburring inside a drilled hole etc.

    True, true, thats why I don't wanna attack it with my dremel. As far as patience goes, well I don't have much, but I thought about that emery paper idea.

    I'm beginning to think you guys don't wanna see me attack my new Colt with a file? I figure if I go and buy a 12 pack it should help things along J/K I'll start with some emery paper, and see how that works out. If all else fails I do have a bench grinder that will do the job

    Not a case of not wanting to see a file attack Bruce - more a case of wanting you to get it right and make a real great job of it

    If you get thru the 12 pack tho - don't start on the gun for a few hours

    unfortunitly all i drink now is water, so that should make the job a little easier going. I tell ya for a simple job(or so it seems ) I am quite nervous about doing it. Crossing my fingers and hoping all goes well.

    Bruce,

    Breaking the edges isn't hard but, as Chris said, go easy. I did one of mine with files and sand paper. To look at it, it doesn't appear that much has been done but, if you look closely, you can tell all the edges are soft.
