1911 Frame


1911 Frame

80 Lower Jig Co. is proud to introduce the latest addition to the world of at-home gunsmithing with our 1911 frames! These not-quite-a-1911 frames are 100% legal to own in all 50 states without the need for any FFL transfer, background check, or paperwork. Each 1911 frame is made from quality aluminum alloy, representing a structural and ergonomic improvement to the 1911’s proven, original steel design.

The result is a 1911 frame that’s ready for competition, target shooting, or all-day carry. All you need to do is complete some basic machine work with hand tools at home – the entire process can take as little as 30 to 45 minutes! Thanks to the availability of our 1911 frame jigs, even novice builders and first-time owners with little knowledge can complete their own fully functional 1911 at home with ease.

What’s more, our 1911 frames are proudly made in the USA by reputable gun makers with decades of experience crafting quality 1911s. Our 1911 frames are available in full size and commander models and feature either a mil-spec anodized black finish or raw billet finish.

Want the full kit? Pick up some of our 1911 frames’ build kits and you’ll have every single part you need to turn a box of springs, bolts and bits into a quality, top-tier 1911 that competes with the best for pennies on the dollar. We even include 1911 frames with jig bundles so you can get to building the second your box arrives at your front door!
