SVI sells finished M1911A1 frames and slides. Their 5" Infinity Traditional Target Pistol in .45 ACP is certified for sale in California through 7/23/2007.

Trust me when I tell you that CA does not allow bare frames to be sold new in the state. The only way to legally get a frame is to find someone living here who has one and is willing to sell it. The SVI, STI, Caspian, Les Bear, Ed Brown, Para-Ordance, Wilson, RRA, Thompson, Entreprise Arms, and other's bare frames are forbotten in CA.

Your only option for a custom gun is but a mil-spec 1911 and go from there.

On a lighter note here's some SV's

and an STI I used to own
