The 1911 pistol has been one of the strongest staples of our great country’s Military history. Invented by John Moses Browning in 1911, the 1911 pistol was commissioned as the US Army’s (and the US Marines’ and US Navy’s in 1913) official sidearm until it was replaced by the Beretta in 1986. The 1911 carried soldiers through more conflicts and wars than any other firearm used. But what if you prefer the 9mm caliber over the .45acp? You can still get in on the action, because this build kit gives you that 9mm option.
You get everything you need to complete your updated 1911 with this kit, save for a 1911 jig, mags and ammo. It comes with a government-sized 80% frame that’s been anodized in black and made from 7075 heat-treated aluminum. Being made from aluminum makes for a lighter carry than your standard steel 1911 frame. It’s also got a picatinny rail under it, so you can mount a tac light or laser on it for those things that go bump in the night. You also get a quality slide-and-parts kit that comes with all the pieces, pins, and springs you need to finish your own workhorse. Simply finish the cutting on your frame, and build away. And since it’s built and chambered for 9mm, you won’t have to bother with buying a different caliber of ammo.
