Very little fitting to have a great sidearm.
Buy this now!

Absolutely awesome. This is very well made, grouping is fantastic and it's a steal at this price. Minimal work to get it to mate with my stealth arms frame. I have 500 rounds through it with zero FTF or FTE issues. Just waiting for the email to tell me more are in stock!

Ordered a couple of these kits to make first 1911 build. Been building 1022 and AR’s so this was a step out of the box. Commercial slide is good quality. Sights can be modified with paint. Use a broken toothpick and white paint for dots and florescent orange for front blade in a hard enamel paint. Easy and works like a champ. As with most builds there is some filing to do. Not much but get good files and take your time. Roto barrel is tight so I ordered a Manson chamber reamer that only took a couple of turns. Use the go/no-go gages. As far as a simple kit to build on a 80% aluminum frame it is hard to beat. Did an upgrade to a high end kit and there was no difference in quality. Sarco kit was as good and better in most cases. Will be returning for more down the road because it is a hoot to build your own. Only thing I wish Sarco would do is offer Commander and Officer kits with comparable quality. If you are willing to do the effort and take your time you will have a nice quality built 1911 that you cannot find off the shelf. You will be the envy of the block when you throw this down at the range.
The most "Baddest" 45 in a box !

I purchased a commercial slide kit a few years ago and it was used in conjunction with a Doublestar frame . All of my fellow Corrections Officers were envious of my build . Mind you this was the FIRST 1911 that I ever owned and built . I also bought a ton of extra "hot rod" parts from SARCO too . The Bros in blue all wanted to buy it because of the "sterile slide" with Bomar style sights and no factory markings only the frame had #s on it . I've gotten hooked on building and shooting guns built on the 911 platform . This was my first but by no means my last !

Awesome product for a person that wants a great .45 that they can build themselves. I am a former U.S. Marine Corps. Armorer but I believe if you do not mind a small amount of file work for something that will fire very nice groups this is the one for you. This was built on a Rock Island frame that meshed great with the commercial slide. All parts in great condition and serviceable. Thanks Sarco!

I ordered this kit to rebuild a 1911 Frame dated back to 1914 Year manufactured. Each part fitted the old frame without any need of minor fitting of parts. Each piece fitted like a glove. The slide took 6 months to arrive due to the large back order. This is the second kit ordered both worked great. 10 plus rating.

Nice product! Easy assembly and shoots well - built on your rock island frame. 2 minor modifications were needed: Came with a rowel hammer but a standard/non beavertail grip safety - took an hour to figure out why could not cock the hammer but nothing aa file could not fix. Front site is tall - again nothing a file could not fix. One nonfixable issue(other than get a different mag) - magazine catch notch cut too wide so mag rattles and disallows slide lock when empty. Anyone wanting a low price solid 45 or wanting to try a build without requiring more than a file and steel wool can't go wrong with this.
Best I have ever gotten

I received the parts today, when I opened the box and saw the parts I was blown away, they are top notch and all easy to fit into my Rock Island frame. I give these parts two thumbs up and recommend them to anyone who every decides they want to build a 1911!!!
