Are you planing on fitting the slide to the frame yourself or have a gunsmith do it? I have heard most frames are over sized and must be fitted. I am just wondering because I have been thinking about building one myself.

I've built several :)

I agree with Hoss.
The special tools needed, the knowledge needed, the experience needed is not for the faint of heart.

Although you won't save money, there is still the satisfaction of "I did it myself".

Check the frame and slide combos at www.brownells.com as a starting point. For most, you could buy a complete pistol for the price.
