Thread: Great gunsmithing site

  1. Great gunsmithing site

    I have belonged to this forum for years. They helped me to get my homebuilt 1911 up and running. Great site with great people.

    Lots of other stuff here, but a lot of 1911 material.

    If you are building or working on 1911's the membership fee is well worth it.

    YES! These guys build them frame up and also do 80% projects. Start with a frame that it 80% complete and finish it yourself. 80% 1911's as well.

    Some even mill the frame from scratch.

    They also do AK receivers from flats.

    Great resource and the instructional DVD are great too.

    Good stuff.

    I don't know if you are into the 80% projects or not, but I think that the whole concept is cool. For the 1911's you of mill the rails and do the finish work on the frame. An 80% frame is not a frame for there is no serial on it. You get to add your custom serial. How cool is that?

    UHH who made your 1911?.... "I DID".

    That is cool but I have neither the equipment or the expertise to do something like that. :(

    Actually you would be surprised. I have seen it done with high end milling machines and then done equally well with a dremel tool or hack saw blade.

    It can be done with a minimum set of basic tools.

    All the info is on that site.

    Good luck
