Brownells has their own forged frame for right around 200.

Thunder mountain custom also has a relatively new cast  frame  for 170 .

Jem guns are about 2 weeks out... not bad currently... rock river lists them, but I don't know about stock. Haven't been impressed with fusion but have limited exposure. Won't do Caspian...

There is a Turkish Company that makes a really nice GI 1911A1 with a forged frame for about $380. Could be a good donor gun.

So, I have to ask……
What has happened at Caspian?
I thought they made very good quality frames and slides.

Tisas is the brand of 1911 you're referring to.


Caspian still makes good stuff but did have some issues a while back with slides.
I've built on quite a few Foster frames of theirs and never really had an issue..

I worked on two Caspian slides in the past two years... rails arent straight or even. Big pita to "recut" them and still get them to fit a frame and be tight

10sandxs,

Do you have experience with JEM? They seem to offer the most variation in options.

OP,
I built my wad gun was built from an older les baer frame and slide combo, the machining could have been better (excessive tool marks). A plausible option, but I do not have the experience with enough other suppliers to say if it is any better than another potential option.

Both my guns are built on jem frames (nelson and wad gun) I think I've done 3 or 4 other guns on jem frames on the past few years, both 1911 and 2011. Good quality so far. You'll need to do some additional external cosmetic work, but its not bad.
