This precision cast frame is better than the traditional forged or machined frame for many reasons including our ability to control the formulation of the metal, do non-destructive testing and to pour the casting in-house.


By using the near net shape investment casting process. We have designed the cost out of a 1911 frame by changing the manufacturing process. CNC Machined frames are good, but very expensive to produce and each one has to be machined from a block of solid stainless steel one at a time. You end up paying for the time to machine the frame and you pay for the scrap material that comes off the block. We make our frames using the investment casting process. By pouring multiple frames at a time, we can lower the cost per frame.


What about the quality?

We have been pouring investment cast components for the aerospace industry for over 30 years. We are used to meeting AMS-STD 2175 standards required to withstand flight, there are no higher standards for manufacturing parts from metal. Plus the casting process allows us to easily modify the actual metal composition to your needs if you want a custom made run of frames... thanks to the fact that we actually melt our own metals.


Nobody can deliver quality like a manufacturer who has over 30 years of investment casting experience. It's hard to find 1911 frames anywhere that compare to our frames. That's why we've become the favorite frame of so many custom gunsmiths. If you want less than 25 we can drop ship from inventory. If you are a larger manufacturer, then we can quote a custom run for you.


F-4Thomcat 1911 Frame

F4 Thomcat 1911 frame is destined to become the industry standard to which all other factory or custom built 1911's will be compared. This 5" long Government Model is the best single stack duty, defense or competition pistol you'll find in America. F4Thomcat offers the best quality, the best value and the best performance.
