This has been discussed million times over, but while opinions vary and some manufacturers have changed slightly (as far as quality, etc), I would like an honest recommendation, if possible.
This is the deal:
I am getting myself into building a 1911, a first one at that. I will have help from a 30+ years Colt's Hartford plant veteran. I will have a complete series 70 slide (Colt) with all the little parts, barrel, bushing, and all. Essentially, everything but the frame.
I do like two tone guns, if possible, and am leaning towards Caspian stainless frame. As far as I know, their customer service is great, and they are in the neighboring state
Then I read somewhere, and this is where Google can be your enemy (too much info) about Fusion frames.
Let me say this, I want plain, tight, tough frame -- no accessory rails, no beavertail, no...well, a straight, plain, 1911 Government model setup with the best fit available with the parts I'll get. I know that Caspian tends to be on the larger size, requiring extra lapping but that's a good thing, IMHO.
