I have a BUL\Kimber framed commander length gun(BUL M5). I want to install the new parts my self if possible. Looking at the blue slide release that came with the new gun, I can see that it did not need any adjustment when originally installed. there are no fitting marks at all. If in fact all McCormick parts are manufactered to the same exact dimensions it would seem that the new stainless unit should also work with no fitting needed. The ambi safety is another story. I noticed that the original single sided unit needed minor fitting. Can I simply copy the work done to the original part, slowly, as a guideline? More importantly, do I need new hammer and sear frame pins that are flat on both sides?
My technical skills are quite advanced as have worked all my adult life(18yrs) as a technician repairing computers, printers, copiers etc... I am skilled in performing quality work on my motorcycles and cars as well. I don't "rig" things, I make them work like they should when new.
Can you guy's offer any help on this?
