Default Drilled out KMP RHSP

Drilled out the KMP RHSP except the pawl brackets, I'll drill them out when I take the plate off to counter sink holes. Started by drilling pilot holes with a .125 drill using a homemade drill bushing, followed by an undersize drill bit, finished with a .1875 reamer. Then screwed on the retracting slide group for looks.

huh I have a question about the barrel support shim

I have been look through the TM's and its not real clear on how to measure to select the proper barrel support shim, all I see is after you screw the support down on a shim hand tight you should be 20 to 55 degrees from full tight. Is there a starting point? like screw it down as far as you can, use a feeler gauge to measure gap. I think thats how Im going to do it, measure the gap that it has when hand tight no shim, then back the support off to the 20 to 55 degree and measure again. How did you decide what shim to use during your build? Right now I do not have any shims and need to figure out witch one I need. Thanks for any help I can get on this issue.

Your on the right track, tighten by hand to that 10:00 position and check with feeler gauge. I have heard of instances of not needing a shim. The support needs to be just tight not overly tight.

Thanks for the feed back on the shim Now Im waiting on rivets and the shim.

In the mean time I've reworked the retracting slide handle so I can easily swap out the handle. The spade grips are easy to change, but the slide handle was crimped onto the shaft. I remade it so the end of the shaft can be unscrewed and a new handle slid on, now I can change all three grips to match, and keep the original look
