Has anybody done this yet...

  1. I've been some research on this and saw this old thread:


    Since I'm on a budget and have nothing but time, I thought I'd give it a try.

    I've been to Sarco, egunparts(Numrich), and Brownells to get an idea of prices but they are just a bit out of reach. Next is to go to local gun stores etc.

    Found some really good info at m1911.org and shotgun news had an article about 'retro building 1911 on a budget'.

    Mainly just gathering info so far.

    youd be better served looking for this at one of the 1911 forums. they can tell you anyhting you want. the exception to that is if you want one in 10mm auto. then check out www.10mmtalk.com


  3. OK Thanks. I'll do that.

    There's a guy in my gun building group who is currently building one. I haven't yet, but fully intend to do so. I've done some research, and it seems painfully simple.
