Stealth Arms 80% 1911

Anyone here have any experience with Stealth Arms, or something like them, regarding their 80% 1911 receivers and their jig for completing them? It is an aluminum receiver and the video they post shows using what amounts to a hand tool to cut the rails and the barrel seat. Thanks, G

I also question whether aluminum is the proper material for ANY semiauto, especially a 1911. Is there any manufacturer out there that uses aluminum as a reciever?

MANY manufacturers-including Colt use aluminum for 1911-type receivers!
