    Well, I went and tried to drill some lightening holes in FrankenGlock's slide today. No joy. A cobalt bit didn't even scratch it. On to carbide. ;Q

    Tennifer is tuff stuff, anin't it!

    I don't know where on your slide you're trying to drill, but the Tennifer is not very deep. If I wanted to drill, I'd grind off the spot first, then drill.

    Hope this helps, carbide is both expensive and fragile.

    Ask CGR or Tom Novak what bits he uses...on the other hand, he probably uses a milling machine or something.

    Good call, I now have 3 9/16" holes in the top of my slide. :cool: It still doesn't cycle, but getting closer. Hopefully the 12# spring will make it right.
