    Wait, you mean a 60% frame isn't...smaller? Well, that kinda' defies the laws of physics huh?

    Seriously now, I've build dozens of guns. You will NOT save money. So don't start the process believing that's gonna' happen. Gun manufacturers go to great lengths & spend large sums of money to build the highest possible quality at the lowest possible price point. Even if you consider your labor free, you can't touch their volume-buying low part costs. Once you purchase the serialized part (frame) from an FFL, all the rest is all your business. After all, if you're in a non-registeration state, even that record of your purchase goes away. If your goal is a "non serialized" handgun, that's fine under the law. But you can NEVER sell it. And if it ever becomes part of any legal action, it'll require MUCH MORE explaining than it can possibly be worth.

    If you want to build a completely unique firearm for the challenge & satisfaction, have at it. If you're trying to save money or remain under the governmental regulatory radar, IMHO, don't waste your time.
    There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.

    looking to build a gun

    OK, maybe I was not clear. I want a 60% Officer 1911 Frame. ThT is what i meant by smaller. I understand all of the costs, and legalities that are involved, and want to do it for the experience.
    But thank you for the input.
