    How much are you wanting to spend? Only reason I ask is there are still parts out there, but I haven't seen any "kits" recently. Of course piecing things together can get expensive.

    I did see some VERY nice parts that would get that to a complete $1000+ level for about $700. so $800 total is still saving $200+ and the satisfaction of completing yourself.

    last 1911 i built i bought parts from numrich and midway.

    i did try some of the sarco parts--they were horrible.

    some of SARCOs stuff is good and some ain't --their RIA stuff i generally good their other 1911 stuff is a grab bag.

    i think i would go with --what is the name of that place in TX that makes all those cheap parts?-- if i couldn't do no better--LOL!

    i like most of that S&W stuff midway sells --some of it is fantastic for the cost--

    mine came in today so far it looks pretty good.

    i test fitted a few things as i got a bunch of 1911 parts take offs.

    grip safety USGI --fit --hell a think a big old beaver-tail would fit with a minor fit.

    trigger --fit

    mag catch close--but a no-go, needs to be opened up and cut out.

    hammer--- very-very close to fitting. my old JM stainless steel is very tight but the stock GI is very close to going in. i got a feeling the SW/wilson econo hammer will fit with very little work.

    disconnector --no hole but on the inside of the frame there is a cut out ramp where the whole goes! big + for that.

    mainspring housing needs notch cut--


    main spring housing very tight as disconector spring area needs some work.

    upper face needs to be cut down and squared up --plenty of area to do it.

    frame width and rail width looks good.

    8rd mag fit perfectly.

    rails need to be cut --various holes need to be drilled --

    barrel seat is tight it will have to be opened up a little--

    a few other things -- i think it is going to be doable with my HF drill press , now i just need some sharp bits!

    I use a keyway cutter with a Flood Coolant system on the mill.

    Default 1911 40%

    Guess these are considered around 40%........?

    As more learn about these, you may be overrun with requests.

    Glad to hear there is an alternative to the other DIY frames. I am familiar with 17-4ph SS. I will test for the hardness and post the results here. If to hard I may anneal, machine and re-harden to H925 or so. Just hope it fits in my tiny furnace.

    One question ........ is there any machining done at all on these to reference off of to continue the milling etc.??

    Money order on the way and the answer ..... well, I'll deal with it.
