OK, I've seen the discussion on the slide stop lever scratching the frame when being installed. Now tell me - How do I install it without scratching the frame? It seems that most of the 1911 newbees end up scratching the frame - and I don't want to be one of those. I just got a Kimber UltraCarry SS and don't want to mar the finish.

Welcome philip!!!

Use a Q-Tip (remove the cotton) and use the end of it to push in the slide stop plunger. At the same time push the stop in until it contacts the Q-Tip (the Q-Tip is positioned flat along the frame). Remove the Q-Tip and push the slide stop up and in at the same time.

Your slide stop can be contoured and polished slightly so that you don't need to depress the plunger with another tool at all, just line it up and put it in. Does NOT affect reliability or function. I've had 5 or 6 1911's set up this way.
