Want to build a 1911

Can I get suggestions where to find an 80% frame? I am wanting to build a shooter.

Check out Caspian arms. They sell 1911 kits. parts, frames etc of very high quality. Pay a bit more now and save later by buying high quality precision parts. My Caspian frame / slide + Bar-Sto barrel bullseye gun, now over 20 years old is still shooting Xs.

Trigger control + Breath control + Sight alignment = Gun Control.

Check out Brownells. A cheaper route is Essex arms.
