Building a 1911 at home is easier now, thanks to the Stealth Arms Phantom 1911 Jig. Finishing your own 1911 80% frame is now something that can be with hand tools and little technical experience. If you want the fastest and most durable 1911 jig you can buy then look no further, the Phantom Jig is the jig for you.
The 1911 Jig Overview:
The 1911 Phantom Jig consists of 3 main pieces; 1 cutting “car” and 2 long side plates. Carbides cutters are used to remove the material from the frame, the Phantom Jig is the only jig that utilizes these powerful cutters. The carbide cutters will be used to cut the slide as well as the barrel set in the frame.
The 2 long side plates act as a guide for the cutting “car” to do its job. When the frame is installed in between the long side plates, the cutting car is then placed on top of your 2 longer side plates, at this point, the carbide cutter will be facing towards your 1911 frame side rail. To cut the rail you will just begin by working the carbide cutter back and forth, it is a more manual task but the best method for cutting these rails. The carbide cutter protrudes slightly and shaves layer after layer until your rail is complete, at that point you would flip the frame over and finish the other side.
