Making a frame with STI grips would be, I believe, an invitation for a lawsuit, unless Ares were to discuss this with STI...which if I were to have a crystal ball, I'd say may happen.

However, this group buy is not for an STI grip compatible paperweight.

I'm in for 2 and a jig either way.

Again for those of you who havent seen these frames yet. They are awesome. They are engraved with ares armor on them (at least the ones I saw) and these guys wouldn't put their name on a shotty product.

I believe the STI frame patent has expired, hense the Fusion pistols with a similar or maybe even identical design.

On the other hand I've often wondered why STI never tooled up for a single stack grip frame.

It could be that it was just on the protos. Either way they wouldn't put their name on something cheap. The %80s traditionally are unmarked, so we'll see

I'm in for one (PM Sent), but would also like to know about what material is used for the upper. I'm good either way but don't see many specs on it's design yet.

Thanks for putting this together, I hope to be back in time before they are released.

mud99, legacy23 and cali-v: I owe you an email - though I thought I had sent you one, mud99. I provided payment information by PM, and from there I update the main page as confirmed. I apologize - boys and girls, I have a full time job and a part time job, so I may be a little slower than usual.

Coming soon...

How about if they provide us the discount/group code for $125 80% and $99 for the jig?

The reason they don't is because they don't want to deal with 100 or so customers with 100 or so payments and shipping - so they take a bulk payment, and they provide bulk product...hence the reason you're paying $125 as opposed to $99+99 or $250.

Exactly. That's how group buys generally work. The vendor deals w/ one or two people who represent the group. Cuts down on all their overhead for the deal. Which is why they give us a discounted price.

Also if they have guys using plastic, then they gotta pay a CC fee.
On large sum is the best, I agree

Okay I'm gonna sound like a total noob but I gotta ask LOL

Can I build this into a 9mm 1911 or am I limited to .45 ? From what I understand I can have all kinds of features of my choices like the type of trigger, the tail but I am not sure about the caliber.

You will be able to build this into a 9MM if desired.

Update: All those interested so far should have received an email from me with payment arrangements and terms. Thank you!

from website: To complete this frame all that need be done are the slide rails, barrel seat and the two rear pin holes.
Since I haven't seen actual pictures of the frame... Does anyone have an idea of what completing a "barrel seat" with minimum required tools of a drill press and a router table entails?

The pin holes and the slide rail I can see...
