I was wondering if anyone has experience doing a 1911 build from the ground up, particularly using a Remsport Frame/slide combo. From what I understand, a lot of custom builders purchase their base frames/slides from them. I also read on their facebook page that they will sell extra frames and slides, sometimes with the frame/slide/barrel/bushing already fitted, to the general public. Earlier this month Remsport posted the combo above for 775. They said that it basically just needed all the small parts purchased and then fitted to have a high end, functioning 1911. Assuming someone was willing to put in the time to slowly learn what they are doing, would it be a worthwhile project to invest in? I dont have the cash for a full custom build from a builder, but I could afford the base combo from them and still have the cash for the small parts(plus money for parts i mess up while learning). I love 1911's and would love to take part in a partial custom build, but I dont want to get it way over my head. I feel like the general consensus will be to just buy one for the money i could put into the build, but I figure its worth asking.
