I build these often and this Youtuber MosinVirus has an excellent video series on several 80% 1911 builds he has done in 9mm and .45 ACP. If you have any questions about your build don’t hesitate to PM or ping me or whatever. I’d love to help you start and complete your build.

God bless America!

So i know im late to this but im interested, the jig is $200, but stealth arms' full build kit with frame is $1000, is there any cheaper way of building a 1911?

Startup costs to begin building 1911s is incredibly expensive and your first time doing it is going to cost around $1k to $1200 no matter what you do. Subsequent 80% builds after that usually won't drop below $700. The cheapest 80% lowers I could find were blemished and cost around $140. Then there is the barrel/slide that usually comes in a combo for around $350. Then you've got the internal parts kit, grips and sights and finish which usually brings it up to $700 even if you buy parts individually. Each time you cut the rails on your next frames with the jig you have to buy a new bit. Especially if you only buy non- aluminum lowers (I think aluminum is too soft and wears too fast). If a no serialized browning invention is what you are after you'll have to pay the price. Some gunsmiths who are able to build pristine, buttery smooth 1911s can turn them around for about $2k-$3k and of course get your FFL and serialize them. There are cheaper polymer options if you don't want to spend so much.
