Be careful. I've seen a lot of scams on Armslist. Notice the seller is unregistered. How does that work?

Lots of sellers are unregistered. He says no shipping, face-to-face pretty much eliminates any chance of getting scammed.

Greetings,

Also be wary of USGI slides. Some are "peanut butter" soft while others passed heat treat successfully.

The genuine NM7791435 slides had stricter tolerances and I have never encountered a soft one.

Cheers,

Dave

Dave,
I am slowly acquiring the parts to build a NM clone up from the NM7791435 you supplied!

Greetings Andrew,

Watch for a NM7791414 barrel that has the rear upper locking lug offset 0.020". This is how the current drawing calls them out.

Kart and IMI are two vendors that make the USGI barrels with the extra material. Their names are marked so on the ejection port side lower lug. Also look for the M and P stamps on the opposite lugs.

I have seen some barrels Vendor stamped "MA" that have the extra material on the rear lug. Sadly, my poor memory does not recall who MA is.

I have never seen a Colt barrel with the extra material, either. They are usually stamped with a "C" inside a square.

The older NM barrels position the cartridge higher in the slide and the firing pin often does not hit in the center of the cartridge. These also required a longer barrel link and sometimes made final fitting a bit more awkward.

A most worthy project! You will be pleased with building your own and shooting it!

Cheers,

Dave

NM7791435 slide coupled with the NM7791414 barrel would be period correct.. both were introduced in 1963-64.

BTW the IMI back in those days was IMI Services of MD.  not the Israel one. 
I don't know who MA was either ..
