    How much would it be to do a 1911 build using Caspian slide and receiver?

    without the proper tools and knowledge, pretty difficult to get a proper functioning and safe to operate pistol.

    if you are inquiring into how much in terms of cost, then still pretty expensive if you have to purchase all the parts and tools needed. i put pencil to paper a few years ago and figured it up and i could buy a really very nice custom or two nice factory pistols for what it would cost me to build my own from scratch.

    building a 1911 isn't like assembling an AR15. there are lots of parts taht needed to be fine tuned and fitted for it to function and operate properly and safely.

    You have a good starting point there, but how far do you want to go?

    You could get a couple of inexpensive kits made up of questionable quality parts to make a shooter.
    Or you could peruse the catalogs and order quality parts that still may need a lot of fitting.
    Or you could drop everything off to a 'smith and let him/her massage it their way.

    What you end up with is limited to how much you can afford to put in.

    Anywhere from $200 to $4000.
