    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...

    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...

    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...

    Finally got my para ord p10 80% completed. Did have a few challenges, but works rather nicely now dry firing. Time to head to the range and send some lead down range.

    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...

    Hello everyone, 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. I'm...

    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...
