Thanks to John Moses Browning, we have the 1911, the sidearm with the longest track record of any firearm in the United States' military history. From its creation in 1911 to its replacement in 1986, it has served the US Army, US Marines, and US Navy well.
This timeless design is simply made to just work. This workhorse takes a beating and keep on doing its job. You can get one of our build kits and have one of these classic yet still relevant pistols too.
Plus, you'll feel better than if you'd bought it at your local gun store, because you built it yourself. This kit gets you everything you need to build a completely finished and functional 1911, save for mags and ammo.
You get a government-sized 80% frame that's made from 7075 heat-treated aluminum and left in its raw, bead-blasted state. This lets you finish it with whatever "paint job" you see fit. Since it's aluminum and not the standard steel frame, it'll be a bit lighter should you choose it as your EDC.
The slide-and-parts kit is quality-made and comes with all the pieces, pins, and springs necessary to complete your build. Simply finish the cutting on your frame, and then build it.
