Zane I am so pissed but I am not going to do anything about it! Doug’s only communication was “ send it back and I will fix it” 8 words! Problem is that my pistol is stainless and only a few people can weld it! If there is a blessing in this mess it’s cracked in a non load bearing part of the frame and through 1500 rounds it hasn’t grown! If it does I will send it back! 
I only have this 45 right now and my season starts in 2 weeks so I don’t have any time

A curious question though is why would Clark say that if you send them a basic 1911 to get accurized and it has a glued in place ejector, that they may "need to install accurails."  I'm not smart enough to get the connection.

If Clark is still peening frame rails to tighten frame and slide fit, the ejector must be removed so they can strike the frame rail with a hammer. I use a heat gun to remove the ejector and loctite it when reinstalled.

There about a hundred dozen or more welders who could repair that crack.  About 10 dozen that could do it so you couldn’t tell if was ever cracked.  Even stainless.  They’re not easy to find but they’re out there.

Something to consider is that the loads should be applied to the frame thru the installed rods.
If the slide was running on the rails in the original configuration I'd expect a failure in the near future...since the rods transfer over a longer area you may get a reasonable life span.

That being said....if I had screwed up like that I would be supplying you with a NEW not repaired frame.

I have no idea how or when they cracked it! My opinion was they over clamped it! I am trying my best to wear it out! I am shooting it 400-500 a week and comparing it to pics

Not knowing the process to install the rail system I would have to guess that there would be a measuring & inspection procedure before they started.  I would think that if that flaw was there when they started, the job should not have proceeded.  That would lead me to believe that there was a gorilla in the mix & they screwed up your frame & should be held accountable.

Sounds like they offered to make it right, and your preference is to keep it and continue to complain?

Yes but I haven’t been complaining one bit! I could have and should have blasted them but I chose not to! I am only responding in a nice way when people comment about what happened. Where do you coming up with me complaining?
