Pitchforks and torches are optional and unhappy "Colt" buyers can meet in the CMP M1911 parking lot 30 days after pistols are received.

Who cares. There is no way to prove when a slide was separated from a frame.
It just make's a collector pass it buy.

I do understand wanting the frame and slide to match, but that would be comparable to a needle in the proverbial haystack. I can see why the OP wants to try to trade his slide for one that is numbers matching to his. Numbers matching will bring more money. Gonna be hard for someone to ID their slide as matching to his without knowing his serial number though...
I was pretty clear what this thread was for. If you guys want to add nothing but commentary from the cheap seats, start your own thread elsewhere. This thread is to serve as data for those with serial numbered slides, akin to the WIN/SA duplicate SN thread.

Again, if you have nothing to add, please leave.
