aluminium framed 1911's shoot like 40 cals- more felt recoil, kinda snappy as opposed to pushy if that makes sense. Steel frame is better for shooting, aluminum better for carrying.

Aluminum makes for a fine 9mm

Stealth arms is definitely the company to consider for your first build. They give you a one mess up gaurantee so pretty much you screw the frame up you can send it back for a replacement.

Sarco parts kit gives you a perfectly good gun but quality isn't the best. Stealth Arm's full kit it really nice and required so much less fitting but you pay for the quality.

I am not sure if the discount codes still work so think it is time for me to push them for a new one. Since I am looking to do another build, I might have to give them a call today! I'll make a thread if they decide to make a new discount.

Here is a link to two of my builds.

If you build an 80percent gun, and if it doesn't work right, can a gunsmith help you, can they work on it?

Sounds about right, right in there with you, got a bunch of steel frames laying around. A bunch of other stuff collected and in boxes.

Have bought from these:
https://1911builders.com/ <<-- this were good when purchased a while ago
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
