Cy Soto Posted February 10, 2008 Share Posted February 10, 2008 If someone was looking to have a 1911-type pistol built (single stack), is there a significant difference (in terms of quality) between the frames and slides offered by different companies (ie STI, SVI, Caspian, Essex, etc)? What would make one company a better choice than the others? Not that I am planning on building gun but, if I were to, I tend to like the “Race Ready” design on the frame offered by Caspian and I also like the “Full Length” dust cover offered by STI. It would be nice if these two features were offered together on the same frame. Oh and I would probably prefer the stainless frame and slides, but it seems that the renowned gunsmiths prefer to work with carbon steel instead. Why is this?
