    im looking into starting a complete custom build and am looking for a good frame and slide to start with. i know of the caspian and wilson sets, but what others are there besides them? i saw an add for florida arms in guns and ammo, and was urious if anyone had any direct knowledge of their frames and slides. are the holes in the right place, stuff like that? anyways, let me know what you think is the best bang for the buck. looking to stay around $500 for the slide and frame if possible. thanks

    Look at Remsport and STI. Baer also sell frames and slides.

    Skip Fusion because they use Remsport and STI.

    Remsport supplies frames for quite a few companies, including Dan Wesson and Nighthawk.

    Thanks. That's my first build from Remsport's frame/slide/barrel kit.

    Remsport all the way... That is what mine was built on... Cast vs. Forged is what sold me on the choice...
