1911 Officer Frame
« on: June 22, 2012, 08:15:25 AM »
Thinking of putting together a CCO style 1911.  I am currently bidding on an IAI Skipper on Gunbroker, but it is rapidly approaching my stop point.

I know Fusion sells a officers sized frame.  Are there any other makers out there that sell a quality officer sized 1911 frame?  Any suggestions for a base gun that I am overlooking that might make sense?

neither one lists a officers frame on their sites that I could find.  Gonna have to call them I guess to see if they do a custom order.

The Fusion frame is a nice forged frame.  I just want to make sure I don't miss out on an uber deal on the latest and greatest new metallurgical and CNC wonder

Would love to see that if/when you complete it.

Grips are one pain point on my Para 16-40/10.  Since they aren't standard 1911 grips, the options are few and far between.

A slab-side will give me a bunch of grip options.

Thanks Vice.  I am pleased with the feel as well.
