When dealing with mechanical accuracy in a 1911 the slide to frame fit, at most, accounts for 5%.
The barrel and barrel fit will account for at least 80% of the mechanical accuracy, some claim more.

I would not be concerned with slide to frame fit unless the slide is so loose that it jepardizes the functioning of the gun.
Then if the slide to frame fit must be tightened the frame rails should be welded and machined back to tighter specs.

Best Regards
