Hey Guys:

How big is the hole in the safety paddle of the Colt 1921? Did all the Colt guns have a hole in the paddle? I got Frank and Tracey Hill's Books and There isn't even a good photo of this. Good books though.

It has a special convex radius; best understood if you can get your hands on one.

Can it be done with a ball end mill? If so what size and how deep? Anyone have a photo they could post?

Thanks,
Richard
