Well, it's a KT ordnance 80% frame. I milled the rails, and fitted the slide. The basic parts kit was from Sarco. I used some of the Sarco parts, but bought new disconncter, sear, trigger, Baer Beavertail, EGW Front sight, Millet Rear sight.

I function checked it before parkerizing, IE shot it, and didn't explode, cycled slide, ejected and fed. I then parkerized, using Palmetto Enterprises parkerizing, which really gave a deep black finish. I haven't had an accuracy firing yet, hopefully tommorrow!

I also made the grip from some chunks of cherry I had laying around, I like how they came out too!

Thanks for the details. Sounds like it's going to be a shooter. Great Job! I've worked on my 1911's and they have turned out well but never from 80%. Some day!

Let us know how it shoots.

If it is %80 then you had to get the firearm ## and registered?

if so, did you pick some cool ##'s?

You don't _have_ to do the serial number if you make it for your own use and never sell it. Now whether or not that is a good idea is up to you!

Looks great, very well done.

I'll bet you learned something about the 1911 while building it.

I'd be proud to call it mine.

Thanks mowerman. I have learned a great deal about the 1911. with this project. In fact, this is the first 1911 I have ever owned!

I've come a long way since I first tried to insatall the sear/disconnector, and about throew the thing across the room in frustration!:D

WOW

That's really impressive. I'm a newb to 1911's too, I love this forum, every time I log on I learn.

I'm not brave enough to even detail strip my 1911 though, you built your first one from a kit?!?! That's cool.

How bout some more pics/info/specs? :D

Here's a before picture of the frame and parts.

I didn't take this picture, I stole it from a friend's (grahamcracka. who also visits here) site. I used his site for doing much of what I did, and without the info in here, I would have never been able to complete the project.

Graham Crackers excellent web site
