They say the best guns are built, not bought. That’s certainly the case here, thanks to our 5” Government Tactical, Bead Blasted 1911 Frame & Jig Bundle. Never before has building a quality 1911 at home been easier, or even feasible. But our kit makes it easy, even for first-time users. The included 1911 Phantom Jig makes at-home gunsmithing a breeze, thanks to the included hardware and tutorials. You need little to no experience to use this jig and build your 1911 frame for assembly. The entire process takes less than two hours and requires for simple steps:
- Cutting the side rails
- Cutting the barrel seat
- Drilling the hammer pin hole
- Drilling the sear pin hole
Once you’ve completed these four steps, you’ll be the proud owner of an innovative and newly designed 1911 frame. Chambered in .45 ACP and featuring a bead blasted finish, this frame is an affordable take on a classic design. Made from mil-spec, forged 7075 T6 aluminum, this frame sheds 60% of the original 1911’s weight. Proudly made in the USA, this frame is compatible with any of our 5” Government Parts Kits. Assembly takes less than a day from start to finish! The best part is that building this kit requires no FFL or background check. It is 100% legal in all 50 states to build your own firearm at home for personal use, no paperwork required. If you can legally own a gun in your state, you can buy this kit, have it shipped to your front door, and build it. This is the most affordable and most convenient way to own a top-quality 1911, period.

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.
