Your next 1911 doesn't need to come from those glass counters at the gun store. Nor do you need to pay a premium for a certain brand, only to swap out parts that you don't want in the first place. Thanks to partnerships with industry-leading makers, we've brought to market some high-end 1911 frame blanks for custom builds. With all sorts of configurations available, you can now create your own 1911 piece by piece, truly from scratch.
Each frame CNC-machined from tough, lightweight 7075-T6 forged aluminum. Frames are available with a sleek hardcoat anodized finish, like you'd find on an AR-15 lower, or you can grab a raw (uncoated) frame and apply your own paintjob or custom coating. Because these frames are made from aluminum, they weigh approximately 50% less than those old, bulky steel frames. They're just a tough and they're compatible with retail 1911 parts, ensuring you can build a custom 1911 without any hassle.
Grab a full-size, 5" (Government) frame for a classic build, chambered in classic .45 ACP or 9mm Parabellum. Frames are optioned with or without an under-slide Picatinny rail, allowing you to attach any tac-light, laser, or other accessories as needed.
Some states have banned 80% lowers and certain firearm parts, or have otherwise restricted the sale and ownership of products we sell. So, be sure to check your local and state laws. We can’t ship our products to certain states. Please check our Shipping & Return Policy before placing an order (see restrictions).
Your build awaits!
