    Default Slide repair

    Does anyone know if it's possible to fix a pistal slide that cracked at the front of the ejection port?

    If possible, does anyone know someone who can fix?

    What brand and model of gun is the slide from?

    It's from a Sphinx Model 2000, the hairline crack is right where the transition to the ejection port. I believe these are stainless steel.

    You should be able to have it TIG welded by a SKILLED welder and then dress down the weld and blend it with the slide. From the outside, and inside, it should be almost invisible when correctly done. How did you manage to crack it?

    I haven't a clue how it broke.

    Any recommendations on who to take for repair?

    Call 907-457-4259 and ask for Dan, his business is called Acu-tig. He does all my welding. If anyone can get this done, he's the guy.
