A 1911 Build Kit is the best and easiest start-to-finish method for building your own custom 1911. A 1911 Build Kit comes complete with all of the parts and pieces you need to build the 1911 from start-to-finish. Since there are quite a few pieces required to build a 1911, everything is separated and labeled in its own respective bag.
Our 1911 Build Kits come in various colors and calibers. You can choose from a .45 ACP, 9mm, bead-blasted aluminum or anodized black! Furthermore, you have the option to build a Government or Commander size 1911. As if that were not enough options, each caliper and size has the option of being a “Standard” frame or “Tactical”. The main and only difference between the two is that the “Tactical” frame has a built-in picatinny rail underneath the barrel for your accessory mounting needs!
On the topic of 1911 80% frames, it’s important to note that all of our 1911 frames are constructed of aluminum - not steel. The aluminum construction makes for a lightweight frame that is 60% lighter than a steel frame! Aluminum 80% 1911 frames are ideal for custom 1911 builds since they are tremendously easier and less frustrating to complete than a steel frame.
