    Hello
    I have a Marvel conversion and am looking for a complete frame 1911 to mount it on.
    Getting tired of swapping it. It will live permanently there.
    Thanks

    Unless you are in to finishing out a stripped frame, which if you look at prices on Brownells are north of $400 for the bare frame, you would almost be better off buying an inexpensive 1911 like a RIA or Tigas. Check centerfiresystems.com for pricing. Here's an example:

    https://www.centerfiresystems.com/p-81-rock-island-armory-51421-1911-standard-gi-81.aspx

    You will probably have to do a trigger job on it to make it more target capable.

    GSG 1911-22. I picked one up for $199 delivered after a rebate from Palmetto State Armory. They don't go on sale that cheap too often, but if you're patient (I think I waited over two years) you might be able to score one for about that price!

    There's a thread about them somewhere on this forum...

    Cheers! M2

    That still leaves him with a conversion kit without a frame.

    A location might help.

    Every once in a while a stripped frame pops up on texasguntrader.com. Posting a WTB thread there may be helpful too.

    Sell it and make up some of the cost! I still think it's a cheaper alternative to another frame.

    Oh, and skip the SIG 1911-22, it's just a rebadged GSG that costs more...
