Well, everything in this world has a usable life, no matter how much you spend on it. So, I get myself a barrel and fit it until all the lugs have as much contact as they possibly can without getting hit by anything. Are these procedures covered in the kunhausen manual?

How to fit a barrel is in the books.

Your RIA is a good platform to use for learning how a 1911 works. If you change one thing on a 1911, there are other areas affected.

Buy the books, and get your RIA to work better than before. Get it to shoot 2" at 25 yards (it is possible). That will benefit you more than changing its calibers.

Precisely fitting the upper lugs for equalization isn't something that's easy to do without the proper equipment. It can be done, but it's a slow, painstaking process. The hardest thing to determine is the exact location of the rear faces of the slide's lugs...and it's not determined the way you might think at first glance.

Kuhnhausen alludes to the importance of equalizing the lugs, but I don't remember if he goes into the fitting details. I use shop manual 2 for dimensions, and that's about it.
