Which edges exactly are smoothed when dehorned? All the corners on the slide? Anything on the frame? I'm assuming that the 90 degree edge is smoothed round.

Are these assumptions correct?

Usually I dehorn any edge that contacts the holster or the shooters hand. It can be as minimal as just barely breaking the sharp edges at a 45 degree angle to a full meltdown, like the Clark gun.

If the edge isn't there to help you grasp or manipulate the pistol, remove it.
