    Default Re: Colt 1911 crown repaired.

    The short barrel will not effect how the pistol performs but yeah, got a little heavy with the crowning tool.

    That's a good point. I explictly asked him if the shorter barrel will effect lock up, or if I'd need another bushing, and he said no it will function fine.

    I checked the lock up by pressing downward on the barrel hood, hard. I have zero movement---literally not even a budge.

    I think it did not effect lockup at all.
