Co worker has a custom 1911 built at the Camp Perry armory. Said it is a Federal frame. I might even be able to talk him out of it to add to the collection. Supposedly it was done in a two tone, beavertail and all kinds of other acessories. Anyone hear of Federal?

Federal Ordnance made cheap, cast 1911 knock-offs in the '80's and/or '90's. I wouldn't buy one for a "collection" of anything but 1911 clone-makers that are out of business.

There are lots of parts guns out there using GI top ends and Fed Ord, Essex, or Vega frames. Beware. Most aren't worth bringing home.
