    1911 Build Information

    Admins... I do not believe this post is against any rules... please correct me if I am wrong.

    While this is not the forum for talk about building firearms I think it is important to share information in a community. I for one would love to see other members handy work.

    I have received some requests from members to post some 1911 build info.

    The websites that I am linking to in no way compete with this forum. They are completley different in nature and lend themselves to the building of firearms.

    I have mentioned in another post the building of 80% firearms such as the 1911 and the AR. Information on this subject can be found here as well.

    For anyone interested in building a 1911 or any other firearm I would highly recomend the RGC site. It can be found here. http://www.roderuscustom.tzo.com/

    Check out the "progress" link and review the different projects.
    The forum on this board is full of builders and the knowledge here is amazing. They are good guys and are willing to share. A membership fee is required if you want full access to the forums. It is well worth it.

    I would also recomend Bindhoggs site. It can be found here. http://www.blindhogg.com/

    Blindhogg offers free information and detailed walk throughs on 1911 building techniques.

    Please feel free to PM me with questions.




    Enjoy

    The 1911 one looks like a deal. I'd like to watch someone fit a safety, measure/fit a barrel bushing, check a barrel link for correct fit-do a few of the other little things. Does it have that?
