I want to identify by name a certain portion of the pistol slide.

This is the portion of the slide that the top-most cartridge in the magazine is pressing against. It is usually a shiny smooth piece of metal maybe up to an inch long (depending on the gun)

I hope I have described it accurately. Does this have a specific name?

I've heard it referred to, by other gunsmiths, as the "Cartridge Rail" but I don't think that is really a technical term - I do get what they mean when they say it though.

As I run the function over in my mind, stripping is exactly what it does. As the slide moves back, the cartridge pops up, the stripper slams into it, and into the chamber it goes. THATS IT!!! I think we got it!

Thanks Doc. I was just telling UncleMike that if I had to make up a name for it, I would call it "the cartridge retaining track". But, stripper track sounds good,

I wish I could take a photo of it and post it here. We have all seen this a million times.....

Thank you Mike, however, this does NOT hold the firing pin in any way.

I don't know how to better describe it

Hi, I consulted Kuhnhausen's, 1911 shop manual he calls this the "disconnector track". It is the part that holds the firing pin. Magazine inserted but not chamber would sit the cartridge under it, regards, Mike

NO.

I guese it may be hard to describe, but an inch or 2 long (depending on the gun) it is smooth and designed to not only press against the topmost cartridge, but the cartridge will slide against it during the shooting cycle.

Let me put it this way, when you insert a loaded magazine in the gun, what is the topmost cartridge touching?? THATS the portion I am referring to.
Uncle Mike Posted - December 05 2017 : 10:59:09 AM
Hi as you posted slide do you mean the recoil face where the firing pin is? The cartridge is in the barrel so it only the rear is touching. Since you said long could you mean the ejector? regards, Mike
