Hi, I have an Ithaca 1911mount on a colt frame rebuild from SA after 2ww.
The slide it is quite loose on the frame , is this normal ?
Also the barrel link it is loose but how can I determinate if the original it is ok ?.
It's not too unusual. GI stuff is loose to begin with and who knows how worn it might be. The slides on them were spot heat treated. You can squeeze the slide for a tighter fit, but, I would let someone that knows what their doing do it.
Another option is a Kreiger Accurail. This is another way to tighten a 1911 slide. I just looked back in a couple of Shotgun news but couldn't find a phone # for you. Search it on the net, there are some pistolsmiths out there that install them.
