Thought you all might like to see my 1911 Project gun. I put it together for $216. I paid $99 for the Caspian frame, $51 for the slide(it has an odd epoxy/paint like coating but looks fine and is super durable), $13 for pin kit, $12 for grips, $20 for grip screws/bushings, $21 for mil spec safety, slide stop, & mag release. Misc parts from a salvage junk frame. What do you think? It does go bang reliably too!
