If you want to build the most affordable, lightweight, and high-quality 1911 that’s perfect for daily carry, you should be checking out our 4.25” Commander Tactical Anodized Black 1911 Frame. This precisely CNC-machined, 7075-aluminum, heat-treated frame represents the legendary 1911 in a dramatically improved form, featuring a shortened 4.25” frame that weighs 60% less than a standard steel frame. All it needs is some final finishing touches.

Thanks to our convenient 1911 jigs and home gunsmithing and machining parts, those finishing touches can be completed by you in about an hour or two in the comfort of your own home. All you need to do is make the following basic machining operations:

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

Once you’ve completed these four easy steps, you’ll be the proud owner of a daily-carry-ready 1911 that requires no FFL to own or shoot. This 4.25” Commander Tactical 1911 frame features a low profile Picatinny rail to affix any light or laser, making it perfect for nighttime carry or home defense.

    • Low Profile Tactical Picatinny rail
    • Manufactured to be used with a 4.5" barrel
    • Constructed from 7075 heat treated aluminum
