Description

The .45 ACP Government 1911 80% Frame is CNC-Machined using 7075 heat treated aluminum. We construct our 1911 80% frames from aluminum to cut down on the weight which results in a frame 60% lighter than a steel 1911 frame. Using a lightweight frame allows for practical everyday carry situations.

Another benefit to an aluminum 1911 80% frame is the ease of finishing the frame, a steel frame can leave builders frustrated and greatly increases the time of your build. Whether you are finishing your 1911 frame with a handheld jig, drill press, or milling machine an aluminum frame will save you time in the end.

The 1911 frames are only 80% completed which allows us to ship them directly to your door, NO FFL REQUIRED. Once the 80% frame is completed it is now by definitely a firearm, at this point it falls into the legal definition of a firearm. If it is legal for you to own a firearm, then it is 100% legal for you to build your own firearm.

USGI 1911 with Anodized Black Frame

This was my second .45 ACP build using the Stealth Arms Jig, and even though I took my time, the lower took only about 2 hours to complete. I used painters tape to protect the lower finish, and it remained perfect. The parts kit I used was from Sarco, with an unmarked USGI-type slide. The major fitting needed was with the barrel lug and the barrel bushing. I used a copy of the War Department 1942 Armorer’s Guide, as well as YouTube tutorials for advice. The pistol functions flawlessly, and looks good.

Quality/service 80% Lowers 1911 receivers

Customer service was first quality with fast shipping on this popular product. "80% Lowers" is the ONLY company offering "anodized" 1911 frames. These units are precisely manufactured and identical in appearance to stock Colt steel frames. Except that they are easier to machine and lighter to carry. Have built several. Completely satisfied.
