9mm / 4.25" Commander Tactical / Bead Blasted 1911 Build Kit



If you’re ready to invest in one of the most popular pistol rounds available, and you want to shoot it from one of the most legendary guns ever made, look no further. Our 4.25” Commander Tactical Bead Blasted 1911 Build Kit offers a new and innovative take on one of the oldest and most iconic handguns ever made. With a mil-spec 7075 T6 aluminum frame and smaller Commander profile, this 1911 kit reduces the original gun’s weight by over 60%. The bead blasted finish allows you to save some money and truly make this gun your own with a custom finish. Thanks to a 9mm chamber instead of .45 ACP, you’ll enjoy greater carrying capacity and comfort.

Even though this is a full build kit, it’s not considered a firearm by any legal definition until you finish machining the frame. Finishing the frame is easy and can be done at home with basic hand tools and no gunsmithing knowledge. All you need is one of our 1911 jigs! If you can legally own a gun, you can build this kit – and you never need to fill out a background check or deal with an FFL to do so.

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