don't know about now.
https://thebuffalo.us/product-category/80-percent-1911/
http://vadertactical.com/ <<-- have a few, but doesn't have any at this time
https://www.fusionfirearms.com/80-19...ernment-frames
https://www.atomicengraving.com/prod...ame-stainless/

And check out "mosinvirus" on youtube he does some great work for what he has to work with. if they are still available.
or search for him on Calguns forum.

And for the life of me I can not think of "the man" who did 45 build courses his name is so popular

http://www.klstottlemyer.com/prints-drawings-etc.html
he has some shop manuals for 45 1911 ....plus some others

have fun and good luck.... one day soon I hope to get all my builds done

I like the look of the 1911 builders jigs and cutters. Their videos make it look almost idiot proof.

I know there is one reputable 1911 smith on MDS who will look at your gun and tell you what you did wrong, but he will not perform work on an 80% so he cannot legally be accused of completing/manufacturing the gun. It is a legitimate concern

It's because of paranoia, which is not unfounded.

I can see the logic but if the gun is finished but fails function testing I would not consider that an incomplete gun. But that is me and each person has their threshold.

'Tis true. This is a case of discretion being the better part of valor. It is only a matter of time before this 80% thing becomes spot light news. They started that about half a year ago with a completed 80% being used in a crime. I personally don't see the difference but that is main stream "news" and politicians.

Mosinvirus does some very nice work. I have been debating the 80% thing...but mostly for the jig to more easily cut the frame bridge for barrel timing and link down clearance adjustments.

Just take your time, your not out to set any records for the build, if in doubt start over, you can remove metal but it's hard to put back. A lot of the jigs take out the "duh" part. Good stones, files, good calipers, basically good tools. 1911's aren't that hard to build, easier with all the jigs, most time will be involved with fitting the parts, blending, barrel fitting, lugs etc.

Bob Marvel ..... now comes to mind

Question, looking at the stealth arms site, I can get an 80% bobtail commander kit and jig for about $1500 with the current 15% off sale. I can get a Dan Wesson stainless commander bobtail for $1400

Not overly concerned with the “off the books” of the 80%, but this is a hard decision on which to go with. I’ve already caved into the rediculous HQL nonsense for previous purchases. What do you all think?
