Finished test firing another build on a raw production DRC frame/slide test platform build. Pretty nasty after 3000 rounds. We were testing one of our new slide stops as well. All around performance was great. With plans to shoot until failure, this is another one that will never be sold.
So here we’ve got another production pistol on the bench, straight out of the mill, that we’ll build out for some final tests. These are coming out great, hitting all the numbers, holes where they’re supposed to be, parallel rails, angles right, everything on the money. We are getting nice and tight frame to slide fit in 30 minutes on these gunsmith fit frames and slides.
We’ve also finished our production runs of our new slide stops, thumb safeties, and grip safeties. We tested them in production pistols from various manufacturers and in Deep River Customs production frames and slides. Finish, fit, and function is great.
These are literally straight out of the CNC Mill. We started production of slide stops two days ago. First version is the tactical model in stainless steel. We’ll be rolling out others as we go.
The guys in the shop took it to the next level and 3D printed a 1911 slide and frame, then put in first run parts prototypes. It’s non-functional, but a nice way to check out and show off installed parts. And no, you can’t order one to impress your friends. @deeprivercustoms
