On SV slides you always have to change the corner radius.shane45-1911 said:Go slow.
There are three places (possibly four) where fitting is probably required. The raised center portion (where the FP protrudes through) is often times oversize. You must decrease this width slightly to allow it to push up into the slide.
Hi Shane, Good response.
We have not seen this in house. If you have a different dimension for this let me know how much you are thinning and we can look at making the part this way.
(of course on You raven 45 it may be a little off a colt or springfield spec )
The second place is the overall width of the stop itself. Remove metal from the right hand side of the stop, until it is very snug in the slide WITH the extractor in place. The end result is that your extractor should not rotate or "clock" at all in the slide.
We make the stops .482 wide. we have had 2 slides ever that .482 fit in. all others we have seen are smaller.
I would encourage you to fit the stop into the slide without the extractor first. this way you can see if the stop is tight on the extractor or the slide. Often you have to open the extractor notch up to .100 so the extractor will slide in.
Also as you are filing away, use a calliper as a portable parallel to make sure you are keeping strait.
The third area is the ejector cutout. You may need to open this notch (usually vertically) to allow no contact with the ejector as the slide cycles.
Try to leave a corner radius if you do this. the top inside corner has a radius so they do not crack into the firing pin hole.
if you have one fail with a corner radius we will replace it.
The fourth area is the radiused corners at the top. You may have to fine-tune the radius to allow the stop to slide up high enough to allow the FP to move through the hole in the stop unrestricted.
