I built 3 of those sarco kits up a couple months ago. LOTS of hand fitting involved. Frame to slide alone took better than a day to get it right. Tools are expensive and only work for 1911.
Bottom line $325 each for parts kits and frames, $275 in tools. $416.67 each not counting custom parts and time. You decide if its worth it for yourself, answers may vary....
FYI: by the way i' m a machinist by trade and don' t count all the precision measuring tools in the above estimate...
