Default 80% 1911 frame?

Where is the best place to get a standard 80% 1911 frame that is not $300.
I have herd that sarco has one for $40 is this true do they still sell these?

Sarco had complete rock island frames for $109 each a couple months ago.( bought 6) I have never seen any partial complete frames from them. They do have a partial machine slide, maybe this caused the confusion?

Hope that helps. The rock islands built up pretty easy. Needs some hand fitting and take your time to get frame to slide fit just right. Makes the diffrence between a target gun and a paperweight...
