I want to build my own 1911, but have little info on this subject. Could someone get me started. What should I buy first? And what is a good brand to go with?

thanks for looking.

If you're really serious, I suggest you get the U.S. M1911/M1911A1 Pistols Shop Manuals Volume 1 & 2 by Jerry Kuhnhausen.
