Our .45 ACP Commander Anodized Black 1911 80% Frames are CNC-machined from 7075 heat-treated aluminum. Due to the simple fact that our 1911 80% frames are constructed of aluminum, they are 60% lighter than steel 1911 frames. Since they are noticeably lighter, they serve as a better everyday carry option.
In addition to being lighter weight, aluminum 80% 1911 frames are much easier to finish than steel frames. Whether you are completing a 1911 frame using a handheld jig, drill press or milling machine, starting with aluminum is going to save you a lot of time and frustration.
Since these frames are only 80% completed, they do not require an FFL or paperwork to have them shipped to your door. Once you make any modifications to the frame that take it beyond 80% complete, it then falls into the legal definition of a firearm. Assuming it is legal for you to own a firearm, it is legal for you to build your own firearm for yourself.
