What's the difference?

I have two open guns with a grip, frame, and slide as seperate pieces. I have seen that there is a 2011 size frame and grip combo(caspian or remington?) all in one and was wondering why we dont build guns that way any more?

I am thinking of building another gun and was thinking why not try a frame like that?  I run heavy and long open guns so I dont think heavy would be a problem, plus was thinking of making it short barreled(4.5") and a ti comp,,, what's the negatives or downfalls,,,

It is a 1911 size frame that takes special double stack mags.  Mags have always been a problem with the Caspian Hicap.  The only ones now that supposedly work are the MBX mags.  The negative is all cast lower parts, usually poorly done.  Also a lot of the rest of the parts are specific to that frame/receiver.

 

I tried one once.  The receiver kit I got was so horribly cast I sent it back.  I went with 2011s and am happy.  I have a choice of a bazillion different parts.
