Looking to build a 1911 in the next month or so.
Want to build it from 80% receiver, double-stack. Springfield type long slide(6"bbl).
Looking to spend no more than $850.
Other than a BM, this is only the second firearm build I have done alone.
Besides Brownells, do you have any sources/links I can spend countless hrs deciding in wich direction to head?
More questions to come. Thank you.
Might I suggest you read a couple of issues of American Handgunner, especially the issues with 1911 articles?
There's a slew of ads in there for Midway, Denny's, Cylinder & Slide, etc. that will help/hinder your choices.
Hope this helps.
