I look at the ejector and extractor as replacable items in a gun. One or the other is bound to break or need replacing at some time.

Why bother serrating them at all? I know it looks good, but once you replace them, its murder getting them all recut and aligned right.

Im my book, a better treatment for the whole back would be a relatively agressive blasting. This way you could finish any replacement parts at minimal cost.

I did it! :smile:
here are the instructions i got from Hilton:
1) install extractor with FP stop
2) dress back of slide so it's all even
3) chuck slide in vise with a bar against the bottom surface to use as a
guide
4) start filing on one side of slide, parallel with the bar guide
5) once the lines are started, continue them onto the other side of the
slide
6) once lines are cut all the way across, then move sideways along the
slide, a few rows at at time


I used a 50 lpi file from Brownells, I frist changed out the extractor and ejector to Wilson parts(this is a Kimber) and trued the rear with the slide.
it came out really nice. I'll post a picture on monday.
