Sometimes, the best guns are built, not bought. That’s exactly what we wanted to do with our new 4.25” Commander Bead Blasted 1911 Build Kit. Featuring a newly designed frame made from mil-spec 7076 T6 Aluminum and shortened from 5” to 4.25”, this ultralight Commander sheds more than 60% of the original 1911’s excessive weight. The result is a compact gun that still packs a punch while affording greater comfort and concealment. Costing a fraction of an off-the-shelf competitor, this kit is proudly made in the USA and features a raw, bead blasted finish so you can put your own spin on the final touches and coating.

This build kit includes everything you need to build an entire 1911 Commander from scratch:

  • .45 ACP Commander 4.25" Tactical Bead Blasted 80% 1911 Frame
  • Slide
  • Slide Stop
  • Barrel, Link, Pin, Barrel bushings
  • Adjustable Trigger
  • Grips
  • Grip Safety
  • Grip Screws & Bushing
  • Hammer
  • Hammer Strut
  • Sear
  • Mainspring Housing
  • 11-Piece Pin Set
  • 7-Piece Spring Set
  • Magazine Catch Assembly
  • Firing Pin Stop
  • Extractor
  • Thumb Safety
  • Disconnector
  • Plunger Tube
  • Ejector
  • Recoil Guide
  • Novak Fixed Sights
  • 8-round Magazine

All you need to do first is machine the frame. Machining the frame is easy and even first-time builder can tackle the job in under two hours with the assistance of our convenient 1911 jigs and parts:

  • Cut the side rails
  • Cut the barrel seat
  • Drill the hammer pin hole
  • Drill the sear pin hole

Once you’ve machined the frame, you can assemble your new Commander in no time at all. Buying and owning this build kit is completely legal in all 50 states – nothing in this kit is considered a firearm until you finish the frame. Finishing the frame can be done at home, no FFL or background check required.

    Special Notes:

    1. We can only guarantee that these parts will fit with 1911 frames manufactured by Stealth Arms, due to differences with other manufacturers tolerances.
    2. This frame is 80% complete and still needs to be finished by the builder. NO FFL is required for purchase.
