Why is the jig separate? Why not include it with every frame kit?
We could price our frame kits at $169 and force customers to buy a jig with every purchase, however because our jigs are reusable, we thought it better to pass the savings onto our customers and price our frame kits at $139.

What other manufacturers parts work with the Liberty 1911 frames?
Our frames are designed to the M1911-A1 standard, and should accept all parts designed to that standard, with the exception of:
Magazine Release – We use a proprietary design, and as such all frame kits include a mag release and spring.
Mainspring Housing / Grip Safety – These parts are eliminated by our proprietary backstrap design.
Hammer – The swept back shape of our backstrap’s beavertail is designed to accommodate modern hammer profiles, and will not work with an A1-style “spur” hammer.
Barrel – Our steel rail inserts are designed to accept a Wilson/Nowlin style ramped barrel and will not work with Clark/Para or non-ramped barrels.
What calibers will you offer? Can I build a ____ caliber 1911?
At launch we will be focusing on 9mm and .45 ACP top ends.
The Liberty 1911 frame accepts standard single stack 1911 magazines and our steel rail inserts are cut for a Wilson/Nowlin ramp barrel. If your caliber of choice is available in that magazine & barrel configuration then you should be able to build your Liberty 1911 in that caliber.
