It’s no big thing.  Just that tiny set screw that fasteners the plate to the slide.

i Love my 97 decocker
I did locktite the LCI screw - mine loosened up after about 400 rounds....


I've tried searching for info on the LCI Screw, but with no luck. I don't want to have issues.

To the best of my knowledge all the 455 variations used the 11mm dovetail. The model 452 used both the 3/8" and the 11mm dovetail depending on which variation you ended up with. I've not used any plates but both DIP and AREA 419 make them. I have a 455 Full Stock that has open sights, with a 2-7 scope in either Leupold or Burris medium rings you can see the front sight ghosting when the scope is in lower powers. You'd have to go some what taller to get above the sights. But I like to keep my scopes as low as possible and consider the front sight ghosting to be a non issue.
Hard to say exactly why they set at different lengths although it is strange. When the pistol is just sitting untouched there's not THAT much tension on the spring unless you are storing the pistol with the slide locked back which I doubt. Best I can come up with is that while the springs are SUPPOSED to be manufactured at a certain rate level I'm pretty sure it's not exact so that probably has something to do with it. Some may simply not be as stout as others.
A couple other things could factor in such as maybe a gun that has fired a higher quantity of hotter rnds than another even though each gun has the same number of rounds fired. Also heat will absolutely affect a spring so if one gun was shot enough to reach higher temps than another that will factor in. Remember the barrel can get hot enough to burn a blister on skin and that spring is directly below it. I've had my pistols hot enough to sizzle water on the barrel so take that for what it's worth.

Ammunition, questions, and handloading techniques / Re: 400 Corbon

40 S&W can be loaded to near 10mm performance.  200gr bullets above 1,000fps, which oddly was the performance standard that Jeff Cooper had for the 10mm. This is a robust load in a CZ and fearsome in a Glock.  The 400 Corbon operating at much lower pressure struggles to meet the performance of the 40 for reloaders.  It is a method to get near 10mm performance out of a 1911, but it seems like a lot of work and expense. In my humble opinion it is easier and cheaper in long run to just purchase 10mm.  Both of mine are EAA witness. The 6in Hunter is a dream.

Best of luck on your project.
