Fun 380 build

The 375 H&H AR is on hold while someone else makes a better gas block than what I was able to do.
So in the meantime, I naturally went back to browsing gunbroker on lunch breaks for a new project.
Found a 380 Llama parts kit, looks complete except frame and mag.
Not the modern Micromax, this one is stamped "Gabilondo" which seems to be much older from what I've read.
But all the parts look identical to 1911 parts, other than the barrel which has no lugs.
So my plan is to 3d print a 1911 frame at 87% (about 7/8 scale), and see how far it gets me. I'm betting it will be pretty close.
If anyone happens to have measurements on one of these frames, I'll likely be needing some help, lol. Or if anyone knows where to find a demilled frame for me to measure.
