Should be a no-brainer considering the tolerances used by Colt. Just put the topend together and slide it on.
What kind of slide and why? If it's not a Colt slide you may have to fit it.I don't understand why you would do this. Gold Cups are worth big bucks. These kind of things are NOT " no-brainers."
...Do you just wanna' use it and not use up the original or is there a problem with it?

just wanted to use it as a sometimes carry gun,the Gold Cup sights are known to go away at times,have replaced mine once.wanted a govt.mod. upper that was a little more robust. use one upper for carry and the other for target work. jwr
