Hello, I am looking into building my own 1911 and would like to make a double stack. I have seen the 80% kits for 1911s and even 1 for a 2011 but it includes the frame. I can get a frame but am lost in how to build the rest of it. I have not seen 2011 kits that do not include the frame. I know the frame is wider than a 1911 so what parts can I use from a 1911 or does anyone know of 2011 kits/ item lists that I would need to finish off the build.
thanks

I think (though not absolutely certain) that the differences for the 2011 are the magazine catch, the trigger, the mainspring housing and mainspring housing pin. And, obviously, the grip and magazines.

STI used to sell slide/frame/grip kits for around $700. If you look around hard enough, I bet you can fine one. Nighthawk is doing the doublestack stuff now too.

The 2011 ejector pin is 3/32" diameter, not 1/16" like a 1911.
