I don't really know but how are the Rock Island frames made? Or you could look for a Norinco and use its frame.

I may have been mistaken, but I thought I say an ad in a gun magazine (American Handgunner?) that stated they were forged. Sorry.

rock island and rock river arms are two different companies. according to rock river arms, their slides and frame are forged:
