    Default rewelding demilled frames ?

    Hello,
    I am a certified TIG welder and have been making and changing parts on my 1911's for a long while now.
    I bought a small lot of military demilled 1911 frames at scrap iron price, randomly cut into sections for my sons to pratice checkering on.
    (1 is one of the first 7,000 1911's made by colt for the milatary)
    What I was wondering is what the law is about welding them up to make a frame?
    I would like to make this a project but... I don't want to have any problems with the law.
    Thanks in advance for your input

    I think you will be okay. Since a 1911 isn't a full auto weapon the frame could be rewelded back to its original form. Is that all of the frame peices you got? Keep us posted on the progress.

    Have some larger parts that were not in this photo, and others that are being used in another 1911 project.
    I know that it is easyer to buy a frame but I would like to do something with the low serial number colt sections.
    I relize that they will not have any real value but I would like to rebuild it.

    Our streets are much safer now since the U.S. Goverment destroyed a piece of history like that. I feel so much better now. End rant.
    Try not to draw fire, It tends to piss off those people around you.
