      I liked my Tactical Machining Gov Blem so much, I waited and bought a Recon Blem on the Black Friday Deal too.
      I bought my 9mm 1911 Gov from Urban Survival Arms.

      Shopping for an 80% frame is like Hunting, only on the internet. Don't be shocked if you have to keep looking for months for what you want. Same goes for the rest of the parts.
      One Trick I highly recommend is buy a version of what is shown at the following link to organize the parts: https://www.harborfreight.com/18-divider-storage-container-medium-94457.html
      A $3.99 investment in the storage container is a lot cheaper than loosing a $39.99 part. Besides, you won't get your hammers, sears, or grip safeties mixed up. Also, you can set one of your 1911s aside for a couple months, you can resume without having to waste time rounding up or test fitting your parts to verify which frame it goes with.

      BTW, I am a Mill guy.

      That's a good recommendation. Thinking on this whole thing further, I might just pull the trigger (no pun intended) on one of the complete build kits advertised from Stealth Arms (https://www.80-lower.com/products/9...black-frame-w-free-portable-handgun-lock-box/). They're priced well enough, and thus everything is guaranteed to fit, according to some other builders and pictures I've seen. The do-it-by-hand process with the Stealth jig seems slow, but simple. I've little experience milling, though I know some have attempted basic work with a drill press and plunge cuts, etc.
