    got some quality parts in there.

    i'd love to build me some custom 1911s, but no monies.

    then, after that, i would buy a silk suit, and run around sucking womens tongues.

          I'm not sure.....Myself tend to not concern myself with little details like that....
          I would certainly ask ole donkey elephant on that note...he would or should beable to point you in right direction.....

          Myself just ordered everything through midway and the appropriate custom makers

                idk from personnel experience, but after googling "1911 parts", some of the websites that come up that also regularly circulate on gun boards are:

                Shop Shooting Supplies | Reloading | Gunsmithing | Hunting gear — MidwayUSA

                World's Largest Supplier of Firearm Accessories, Gun Parts and Gunsmithing Tools - BROWNELLS

                CDNN Sports, Inc.

                Bravo Company USA, Inc. AR-15, M16, M4 Tactical Gear, Parts, Accessories. (ar15 upper made by them)

                these should be good places to start.

                      No current updates.
                      I have it at a local shop for the last 8 months being built-Should be complete and in hand by may.
                      I went a differnt route and added a few things to it since this topic was made.
                      I will end up with 2 slides. One compition slide and one for EDC.
