Les Bare, steal frames..... now jambs??? Arrghh, you guys are killing me!Pictures of the jamb would help to see if it's getting on the breech face or not.
Nothing about your frame appears to be beyond some minor repair work. Baer has a reputation for being less than helpful. My personal experience with that goes back to the 80s when he was the custom shop manager at Springfield Armory. If you just want a steel frame that can be done, too. Your best course of action is to first eliminate the easily checked items like replacing old tired springs with fresh ones, closely examining the frame and other components for obvious burrs or damage (finish wear is not damage), trying some known good magazines (those that came with it may be worn out of spec), and the ntake/send it to a known 1911 qualified gunsmith. Heed my emphasis. There many folks that qualify as general gunsmiths with no specific knowledge of 1911s. There are far more folks that THINK that they're gunsmiths and are definitely not. If you are comfortable with posting your general location we can probably recommend a smith that can be trusted. Or you could ship it to one. But be sure to check the smith's creds and reputation among the 1911 community.Found the frame looks kinda beat up. Sent pics to Les and ask what they thought may be the problem. They said the frame needs replaced. Wrote back to ask about having it fixed. They said they no longer make aluminum frames and couldn't help me ? So I ask about putting a steal frame on the gun. Told me that can't be done because the slide had already been fitted to the frame. From what I have read the frame is fit to the slide ?

Understand that to some people grammar was HAMMERED into us in school and errors are grating. Imagine looking at the sheer number of posts a mod reads as part of his job here. It is cumulative in irritation.You are the strangest Mod ever, I'm on my phone, late at night and not sitting for the SAT's.
