I really want to find a reasonably priced build kit for a 1911. Anybody know of one?
It should be able to handle it. Clark's Customs Guns had a list of those 1911s that they would not convert, and I believe that SA was not on the list.Need some input .. Springfield 1911 gi a1 parkerized ... Can it Handel the 460 rowland kit? Do y'all think its beef up enough for the kit?

Looks like a heck of a lot of entertainment for $295.Q: Are there any other guns that you specifically DO NOT recommend for the 460 Rowland?
A: YES! We do not recommend this kit for installation in
- IAI (Israeli Arms International) - We've found the top lugs in the slides of the Philipines produced 1911s to be soft! We've not tested the Israeli made guns but would recommend extreme caution.
- Rock Island Armory
- Auto Ordnance
- Charles Daly
- Remington Rand
- Any "GI" 1911 (note: Springfield Armory Current Production models excluded)
Look again. A modern production Springer GI is fine.Guess I shouldn't try it then ... Thanks for the input
Springfield Frames are strong enough. The Springfield GI is just a configuration or style. It's the old GI spec frames, from back when, that are iffy.Any "GI" 1911 (note: Springfield Armory Current Production models excluded)
A few questions:I'm going to revive an old "zombie thread" and re-ask the question. I was given a 1911 frame and slide. It has sights and I have a new GI barrel. I have a few small parts, but would probably be best off getting a "kit".
It appears SARCO has kits in stock for about $135, including the barrel. I see mixed reviews about SARCO parts kits.
Any other suggestions?
