Actually, do you have a tool to fix 1911 mag feed lips? A couple of my mags won't drop free any longer & I kept meaning to look into that.

The simple answer is no.

The anvil and yoke tool your talking about doesnt cure out of spec magazine bodies. It's used to form lips and angles for feeding wadcutter ammo.

The gunsmith who taught me was old school and did not like using tooling for tuning mags. he believed that made smiths lazy and dependent of tools only and not micrometers, calipers and taking your time. i tune using JERRY KUHNHAUSEN'S specs, dial calipers and time.
If you have mags that wont drop free bring them, I'll take care of them too. I'll post pics later of what your mags look like.

And some people will tell you that the tooling ensures perfection, I don't buy into it. Tooling is great to get you in the ball park but will never replace experianced hands.
