    Hey guys,


    I was hoping someone here might be able to answer a question for me. I am building a new AR right now and was on EBay looking at sights. Well, one click leads to another and somehow I stumbled onto an eBay store that sells handgun parts lots without the frame. My question is does anyone sell stripped frames other than 1911s? I looked around on Google for a bit but didn't find anything. Thanks.


    heres the link

    I've seen Glock frames for sale a few places.

    Depends on the type of frame you're looking for...

    1911 frames a re produced by a number of manufacturers and the platform is not protected by branding. The companies like S&W, Colt, Ruger, et-al are going to profit by selling more complete firearms AND not have something out there that is a franken-gun for the lawsuit problems that would result. I also see with rifles there are even 10-22 receivers now produced aftermarket.:) SO would YOU honestly buy say a Hi Point frame and build one that was custom out of parts??:D

    Many of those "parts kits" come from confiscated guns that are sold off as destroyed. The frame is rendered nonfunctional, the remaining parts are sold.

    mkIII handgun frames, as well. And the mk I-II-III-22/45 barrel+receiver unit has been produced by the aftermarket for years.

    interesting

    Most double action pistols are too complicated for the average shooter to correctly assemble.
    Double action revolvers need to be timed, something the average gun assembler lacks in the skill department.

    Glocks, 1911s, M16/M14/M1 type rifles can be assembled by the average joe except the .30 cals barrels need professional installation.

    AK type firearms can be formed and assembled by a skilled mechanic
    Mauser bolt actions aren't too difficult to locate.

    Ruger offers bare receivers and complete actions less barrels from time to time on their 77 bolt and #1 single shots as does CZ-USA

    Quite a few receiver options out there for the skilled and unskilled builder.

    Most frames you are going to find are those that are popular to custom build. The mentioned 1911's, Marks's, Glocks, and occationally CZ's. Finding say a Sig frame is going to be very uncommon.
