With my slide removed and barrel in the slide, the lugs. there seems to be too much side to side play.

I have toyed with the idea of building my own 1911. Some pretty good frame deals going on now. Not necessarily match grade, just a nice shooter.

I build competition grade 1911's. Caspian arms slides guaranteed against cracking forever. They will hand lap slide to frame for a small fee. They sell everything for 1911s except barrels. Great quality
