1911 Barrel Leg Cutters
Cutters are typically sold by pre-sale. To be put on our contact list for when cutters are available for purchase, please email Heidi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Designed with help from our friends Fred Totts, Jerry Keefer and John (our cutter maker), these cutters make fitting the lower legs of a 1911 barrel easier than ever before. A great deal of thought, experience and experimentation went into making the best cutter we could come up with whether you use them in the traditional manner by hand or in your mill or CNC.
The cutters are made from high micro grain carbide with six cutting flutes and feature a self aligning taper on the handle side which allows the cutter to be perfectly centered in the slide stop hole on the frame. The AlTin coating was applied for better wear resistance and each cutter has a fluted pilot shaft for lubrication in the frame pilot.
The two cutter set was our original offering with a roughing cutter measuring .186" and a finishing cutter measuring .195". We also now offer an intermediate cutter at .193" which helps prevent the chance of over cutting the legs on guns with looser slide to frame fit. We have been using the same set of cutters in the shop now for nearly two years and they are as sharp as the day we got them.
Many top name shops around the country, both custom and production custom, are now using them as they save time, provide a smoother cut and better slide stop to leg fit than older or more traditional methods.
Each two cutter set comes with a precision made pilot that fits tightly in a frame with a .200" slide stop hole. The pilot size of the cutter (.136") allows for you to make additional frame pilots if you have a frame with an over sized hole.
