1911 80 Frame

The craze of at-home gunsmithing has taken hold across the country, and America’s favorite handgun is jumping on the bandwagon! The 1911 80 frame is exactly what the name implies:

A quality, mil-spec 1911 frame that’s 80% finished. A these frames require basic machining that even a novice owner or first-time builder can complete easily.

An big upgrade to an old design

Each 1911 80 frame is proudly made in the USA with precision CNC machining by top gunsmiths. Our 1911 frames aren’t just as good as the O.G. pistol – they’re better!

We decided to ditch old, heavy steel and use mil-spec 7075 T6 forged aluminum. These ultra-light frames reduce total weigh by 60% compared to a traditional 1911.

Compatible with factory 1911 parts

The best part about our frames: They’re compatible with retail 1911 parts! That means you can finish your frame and install the exact parts you want.

Government and Commander models!

Available in Government (5″) and Commander (4.25″) models, each 1911 frame offers an affordable alternative to buying one of America’s most sought-after pistols – one that otherwise commands a high price for quality.

Easy and legal to build

Finishing a 1911 frame is simple! All you need to do is cut the side rails and barrel seat, and drill the hammer pin hole and sear pin hole. Machining a 1911 frame should take as little as 30 to 45 minutes once you’re confident in the process. You’ll need to grab a 1911 jig to get the job done!

First-builders usually get the job done in 1 to 2 hours. Each 1911 80 frame is legal to own and build into a functional firearm in all 50 states, so get building!

Be sure to check your local and state laws, first. Laws and restrictions may vary.
