Chances are good that you’ve heard of a standard, completed 1911 frame before, right? If you have not, a completed 1911 frame is just a frame that has every hole and slide rail already milled out. They're popular choices for buyers who want to slap a 1911 together pretty quickly. Chances are that you are exploring a 1911 80% frame because you are up for the rewarding challenge of completing your own 1911 frame, right? Rest easy, you’re in the right place.

An 80% frame is, as the name implies, only 80% completed. That means that you, the builder, have to complete the remaining 20% for it to become a frame that is ready for the rest of the 1911 parts to be built upon it. Now, when a 1911 frame is only 80% complete, there are benefits beyond the fact that you finished it yourself (which is still really awesome). The other benefits that are a 1911 80% frame are not considered a firearm and, therefore, does not require any paperwork or FFL transfers. You can simply buy the 80% 1911 frame, have it shipped to your door and finish it in the comfort of your own garage.
