103 Citation frame



Log in to see fewer ads
Is this a normal looking frame where the slide hits up against? What is this area called? Why is the corner cut off like that? What purpose does that serve? Cold someone explain?

Thanks

Wear

The wear pattern on the recoil lug on your frame is normal. The clipped corner is found on series 102, 103, and early 104pistols. This clipping allows the slide to go fully back to the lug. Early slides had some metal left in the area of the slide where the rear of the firing pin sticks out. This prevented the slide from going fully back unless the corner was clipped. Later slides were machined differently so that the interferring metal was removed which eliminated the need to clip the corner of the lug.

Clipped corner

Thank you Wayne.
I don't remember seeing this corner on other 103 or 104's I had a chance to review recently. Appreciate the info.
