    Has anybody here built a 1911 from a 80% kit?

    I'm working on one and already have my sacrificial frame. Have done a lot of Youtube watching and buying tools to make things right. My question is; when you cut the barrel seat, other than the measurement given, how do you know if you cut deep enough? What is the barrel seat matching the barrel up to when the slide is closed? I'm trying to build a tack driver.
