Rear Serrations on the slide
How does a gun smith cut rear serrations on the back of the slide to match sight serrations? Is this done with a serration file or is it possible to machine cut these with a mill on a convex surface?

You could do it either way but I feel that doing it by hand would be much faster than trying to set it up on a mill.
Milling the serrations would be tricky if you wanted to follow the contour of the rear of the slide.

Because of the difficult setup and radius problems, most people cut these by hand with a steel checkering file .
Since this isn't checkering, just very fine grooves, this is much easier than checkering, and isn't hard as long as the lines are kept square with the slide.
