Nope. All steel. Got one; good shooter..never any function problems. Have had couple others in trade and they too were good shooters. And if you need an all steel 1911 I got a couple NIB Norks, plus one shooter.

Colt LW (lightweight) Commanders are the ones with aluminum frames. Also some Officers Model ACP and Defender pistols (I believe).

Everything I've seen so marked, whether Gov't, Commander or Officer's ACP size, had a steel frame.

As has been said, the M1991A1s were all steel. In my opinion, they are one of the great sleeper guns. Usually found for less money than a polished Colt, but they are reliable and shoot great. I'm still regretting the one I sold recently.
