Hi George

Just a hobby guy here. Why are links made in .005 increments or decrements? Why not .001? Measure the barrel feet and pick a link .001 0r 002 shorter. To do this, wouldn't the slide stop pin hole have to measure .002 or .003 greater than the slide stop pin to achieve contact with the rear of the barrel lug feet and not bind?

Also wouldn't the distance from the center of the slide stop pin hole to the vertical barrel stop surface of the frame be entirely dependent on the link length, which is dependant on the barrel lugs, which is dependant on the slide locking lugs, etc..

Sorry for all the questions. I hope this is what you were soliciting for.
