I’ve just started down the Gunsmithing rabbit hole, got the itch you might say.
I’ve found a few component suppliers and will be researching their products while working on a budget for a concealed carry custom 1911.
When I built my first AR, there was no shortage of full build kits, you supply the lower and they supply every part, screw, and spring to make your rifle. Is there such a thing in the 1911 world? For a very first project it’s sort of nice to have the full roadmap, less chance of non-compatible or unsuitable parts.
My other option would be to start with a positively reviewed production pistol and modify till my hearts content.
