Hi guys, I'm looking for an aluminum 1911 frame and could use your advice/ help. I see very few on the roster but I'm not an expert with the model numbers so if any of you could help me make a list of guns to look for I would appreciate your help.

Thanks,

Not sure what your budget is but the Wilson aluminum framed models are beautiful. If you really want one, you can always single shot it.

Smith & Wesson has 4 models in the PD series which are aluminum alloy frames. Note that the new E series Wesson's are not on the list. The purists will not accept the external extractor and the Swartz safety on these models, mine still works.

Handgun frames cannot be dros'd in CA anymore. You can only register complete pistols, and Caspian is not on the list.
