Every time I see a 1911 I pretty much drool. They're beautiful guns, only one problem though... there's so many variations to choose from that I'm at a loss to choose from them. So I pretty much decided that I'm going build one from scratch. Now I've been looking into this for some time now and I've seen stripped frames priced from $70 to $300 a piece. So yet again I'm stumped. Right now what I know is I want to build a 1911, more than likely a commander, not full sized. I don't want to buy top of the line stuff, just in case I decide I want something different. At the same time I don't want some POS frame that's going to develop burs down the rails after 500 shots. In regards to finish, that point is probably moot since I intend to refinish it regardless. Any suggestions?
