So, you wanna build a 1911. Perfect! But how easy is it? With our 5” Government Bead Blasted 1911 Frame & Jig Bundle, it’s so easy that even a novice gun builder with no experience can do it in about an afternoon – yes, really. But how? First, the included 1911 Phantom Jig in this kit transforms you into a precision gunsmith. Thanks to the easy setup and tutorials, the Phantom Jig allows you to machine the included 1911 frame to completion with four easy steps. The Jig includes the necessary hardware, so all you have to do is:
- Cut the side rails
- Cut the barrel seat
- Drill the hammer pin hole
- Drill the sear pin hole
Once you’ve completed these four steps, you’ll be the proud owner of a quality Government 1911 Frame, ready for a final coating and assembly. Building a 1911 frame at home like this is 100% legal in all 50 states, no FFL or background check required. If you can legally own a gun, you can build this kit. The best part? This kit ships to your front door – it is not considered a firearm until you put in the work! Once finished, the 1911 frame in this kit becomes one of the newest and most innovative takes on an old gun. Made from forged, mil-spec 7075 T6 aluminum, this frame cuts weight by 60% when compared to the original steel 1911. Made by Stealth Arms in Ohio, this frame is compatible with any of our many Government 1911 Parts Kits.

If using a steel 1911 frame we recommend purchasing some extra carbide cutters as steel is a tough metal than aluminum. We recommend every individual to do their own research regarding building your own firearm. We are not lawyers so please educate yourself on your state and local laws.
