Ok, because I don’t have enough hobbies, or guns, I’m contemplating building a 1911 from an 80% lower receiver. Has anyone done it? I’ve been watching a lot of YouTube videos on it and it seems fairly straightforward, buy the part, buy some jigs and a book. I actually have all of the tools required for the job I just need the rail jig and the “decking” jig which are about $250, there is a few files I would need and a couple specialty stones. The bummer is it seems that the sum of the parts far exceeds just buying a brand new pistol.
