    I have 1911 pistols but did some searching without alot of clear answers.
    Where is the best place to get a 1911 lower half to start a build.
    want to make a 1911 in 22 to play with

    +1. You can have it any way you want from caspian and their stuff is very good.

    What's the point of sending an infantryman to Ft S
    Also check MidwayUSA and Brownell's. They sell a full range of parts for the 1911 from various manufacturers. Just a reminder: The frame has a serial number and will have to be shipped to an FFL in order for you to receive it.

    If you are on a budget try Sarco. You can get a frame for $89.. It is an Armscor frame.

    FWIW ...

    AR-15s have "lowers." 1911s have receivers (a.k.a. "frames"), and they have slides. No lowers, no uppers.

    You don't need a $200+ Caspian for a .22 plinker. Go with the Armscor or Essex receiver from Sarco.

    I agree with this, for sure. Essex frames are pretty good, from the two I've used to build up guns. The guns are .45's and work fine.

    These would be just right for your .22 LR project as well, I'm sure. Don't toss a lot of dough at the project... IMO, part of the fun is saving a buck.

    Let us know how it works out for you, please! :)
