Been looking around for other 1911 frames and slides from manufaturers besides Caspian and STI. At one time I had decided to start a build on one of Caspians titanium frames, but the cost and tooling issues have put a hold on that.

Now I think I'm going to use an aluminum frame and build a commander length .45. Havent found a source for an aluminum frame with searching though.

Anybody with some info, it would be appreciated.

Don't think Kimber or S&W sell bare frames for custom jobs, but would like to be prven wrong. I like Kimbers stuff...not so much S&W.

    Brownells isn't showing any alloy frames, but I'll probably use them for other build parts. They have given me good service before.
