Cool. Our member ken mays has built a complete pistol from 80% frame. Do a search and look at his threads about it. It may be harder than it seems, or it may be piece-o'-cake for you.

Here's the link: http://www.geocities.com/kemays

I've done three so far, and I think I'm done with messing with 'em. These Sarco frames look a little more raw than the KT Ordnance frames I'm used to using, and will require some tooling I don't have.

Nowadays, instead of spending hours to get a 80% frame finished, I'd rather spend my gunsmithing time on other things.

Yeah I bought a sarco too. What a dissapointment, I am crushed. The bottom of the frame is chopped, now I am going to have to pay shipping to return it and wonder if Sarco is capable of sending me the one I want. Damn it.


Here are links to images of the frame next to a Springfield frame.

don't send it back. You can hack off the extra material and make it a officers length grip. You'll have to use modified Gov length grips, but it should work. It would be a frankengun but hey, it would be different.

No thanks man. Then I will have to get parts for the officers lower. I was going to get the 189.00 sarco parts kit special, and it wont fit this gun. Im sending it back. Hopefully they will be nice and I wont have to pay shipping twice. After all, they sent me the little monster.

Or you could weld a magwell to the bottom of the frame.

Shipping is (what?) two bucks?

Send it back and get the proper part.

Guess that's why theyre called "decorator" frames.
Theyre a paperweight.
I was going to get 6, but now I dont think I will.
I'm only about 1.5 hr from them. Maybe I'll have to go there and pick them out.

Sorry guys, the site owner/webmaster does not want 80% frames discussed.
