    Beautiful. Great job. You're sure going to enjoy it.

    Please pardon my ignorance but what's a Sam frame? Who's the manufacturer and is it cast or forged? I've been looking at frames for when I get ready to try building my first one but I haven't settled on a particular frame or slide.

    Thank you all,

    Yes I'm very proud of it.

    Toolman, The Sam frame is an inexpensive frame made in the philippines, I had it for quite a while , Though I plan to use a more expensive frame for the 779 slide and use the sam frame on a cheaper 1911 project, When I started fiting the beavertail and filing the trigger undercut on the frame, I was surprised on how hard the frame was, the hole are on spec. and parallel, So I decided to use it with confidence. I read that sam frame are made from 4140 carbon steel. The problems with it were, The VIS needed a little shaving and there are some roughness on the inside that I have to smoothen.
