Hello. Checking in from CA.
Hopefully moving to Montana soon. I currently don't own a functioning 1911 but i have a work in progress 80% build (A rimfire 1911 pattern based off the CWA slide) that has stalled due to lack of funds/tooling.
I'm also interested in the RIA 10mm pistols, but i...
Well, I just don't see myself getting around to building another 1911 so I have for sale a couple 80% tools, and misc. Items.
Matrix rail cutter & decking jug with hardened drill guides used once, worked awesome. $225 for both.sold
Unused EGW long ejector part #10000 $20
Used Kart barrel...
Ive taken up building a 1911 on my spare time. I purchased an 80% frame and fit it to a colt slide. I went with 38 super because I wanted to have something different from what i already have. ive made it all the way as far as to fitting the barrel to the slide. I ran into an issue when I put on...
Am I allowed to order a steel frame and build a 1911 from Stealth?
Says will ship to home address.
Not a serialized part etc
Brownells ships serialized framea
Must go through FFL
What is correct procedure
Remember, I am in Nj and there are lot of extras here what u can (can’t) do.
I don't know why these things bother me so much?
Maybe it's the fact that there are so many good options for frames and slides to purchase that have a known quality? Maybe it's the availability of decent base pistols that don't cost more than what you would pay for just a frame slide and a...
I recently put together this 80% frame that is a Para Ord p10 clone and went together fairly well, but upon further inspection found that the hammer that would cock properly by hand would not when racking the slide. I took it a part and found that the hammer is hitting the beavertail grip...
I have just completed the frame cutting on my ultra compact 1911 compact and wondered and wanted to know exactly how far back does the slide go back on the frame. I am in the process of lapping the slide and it just occurred to me to ask.
I finally put together my 1st 80% 1911 from a very nice Stealth Arms aluminum tactical government frame but didn't like the Stealth Arms slide cutter and went with Matrix Phantom Jig instead using .117 cutters as I wanted this to be as tight as possible. The Stealth Arms seam to cut much larger...
Doing a build for fun! Using all leftover scrap parts , a $20 raw casting I overcut the rails on this summer , and a $60 llama 9mm Commander length slide that came with a bunch of parts.
And to make this thread fun,
Please post your cheapest build, the Bubba' ier the better. Rattle can...
I have a brand new Ares Armor Rudius 80% 1911 frame with the Enhanced Jig and all necessary tooling. None of the items have ever been used.
I bought this for a project and decided to go a different direction. This would make a great Frame for a Tactical 1911 build.
Hello. Been lurking reading the forum for a while. I have decided to build my first 1911 via an 80% build from 1911 Builders. A small investment to learn, have some fun, and take pride in building something I can use.
My question is when do I apply bluing or polish the SS? Is it after I...
