A smith will not complete an 80% Rudius frame for you.. if you are talking about repairing a functional issue on a completed Rudius, just describe what the problem is, and we can probably diagnose on the forum here, or you could post your location and someone can recommend you a good smith nearby if you aren't comfortable working on the internals yourself. There are also threads listing good local 1911 smiths in different areas.

Don't know if its true but a smith here said that ATF wouldn't allow him to work on a 80 completed or not. Post some pics so we can help. Then again the op hasn't responded since he started the thread so....

Id have to think a completed 80% (with serial #, mfgr, etc engraved per ATF regs) would not be a in issue for any smith to work on. After all, it could theoretically have been transferred to a subsequent owner.

But without any of those required markings, I can understand a smith not being able to work on it. How would they log it in? I suppose if you can "manufacture" a Rudius, you ought to be able to repair it.

I think our thread starter here may be in over his head.

They can legally work on them, they log it in the book as NSN. Same way they would an older firearm (serial numbers were not always required by law)

Now liability wise, I'm not sure they would WANT to work on a home build.
