Ok guys I was wondering if you can build one buy ordering a frame and slide and ect off line
Short answer is yes
No money savings, but yes it can be done.
Go to Wilson Combat or Brownells. They'll sell you a fitted slide and frame. Then you can jump into buying parts.
Long answer is first based on your skill level.
Second is, a full understanding that the 1911 is a delicate balance of mechanics, science, experience and art (read: FM).
If money is the reason for this build, forgetaboutit!
If self-gratification is your goal, you best not be an instant-gratification personality!
This is an often posted question with few successful follow-ups. And even fewer "I QUIT" or "Just gave up!" responses due to IMHO, the 5th Amendment.
