Hi all,
I want to start to build a 1911 from 80% finished frame, try to use search button but no answer. I have several 1911s including a SA GI which I want to use the frame to upgrade. Now I want to get more challenge and want to build from a frame. There is a functioning 1911 in the US museum which was built by VC guerillas during VN war from gasoline tank, that inspired me.
So where I could by a 80% frame? I can buy a Caspian frame from Midway via my local FFL but it is already finished, just assemble parts.
Thanks in advance.

How can you pull that off?

Thank you, interesting links and forums, I need to learn a lot before starting, but just buy the cast frame first.
