Lets just say that the work estimates on Philippine 1911s are higher than for a Colt or Springer.

If you want a double stack 1911, start with a Caspian Arms frame and slide. Between their custom features, fitting the minor parts yourself and some judicious purchases, you can have it 85-90+% done before a gunsmith finishes it. And you’ll have a gun that isn’t full of MIM junk.

I mentioned the Cimarron 1911 I had briefly, in a previous post and what it needed to be right, and it was out of the box original.
Same factory, same specs.

Sorry but 1911s are not a place where cheaping out pays off.
Much like good boots, buy junk, you’ll be paying again.
