I'm looking for a 1911 frame 100% complete or 80% any one have any good links?
I've had good luck with the Fusion Firearms frame.
Not very fond of there price
And there customer service is crap.
I guess everyone has a right to be an a**. I just want to explore every option and price rang before I make a final choice.
Love the avatar
Barney was cool, but jim tom is growin on me
I like Jim Toms sense of humor
And pretty sure he made shine
With popcorn one time.
Just good ol backwoods folk.
I saw a couple of complete lowers (RIA and Remington) on gunbroker.
Search on "frame" in the 1911 parts area.
Try sarco they had rock island parts kits plus a pretty good selection of option parts. 9 mm, 40 and 45 barrels and slides keep coming in and out of stock. Check back often and call as not everything is on the web site.
Midway also has lots of parts for 1911. Between the two you should be able to build what you want.
Also check www.e-gunparts.com
I got good customer service from Fusion when I bought from them several years ago.
Another place to look is Foster Inc. They are the parent company for Caspian and they sell Caspian blemished frames at a discount. They won't release any frames through the Caspian name unless they look perfect, so the ones with cosmetic blemishes only get closed out through Foster. They don't release any that have structural or functional flaws, only cosmetic.
Fosters looks good I will call the and talk to them. Do you know if they do 80% frames?
I'm also wanting to do a build from 80% as well so looking for 80% frames.
There was a setup like that on gunbroker.com
Slide and 80% frame.
Also, Numrich advertised frames they have available.
I'm not sure. The way taht I understand it to work is that Foster sells the frames that are completed and have cosmetic blemishes only after they are finished, but they may be able to help you locate an 80% frame.
I met an officer at teh fleet matches who had built several 1911s on Foster frames. He had a couple that were still just bare frames and he showed us the blemishes. Not much more than scuffs in the final bead blast on one, and a minor ding in a corner of the dust cover on the other. Things that would be covered up with a final buff, bead blast, and parkerizing.
I like fosters they look good and the price's don't look that bad.
I'm going to contact them and ask about 80% frames.
