Unknown 1911 Frame Please help

Hello, I am new to the forum, I have a 1911 frame with the kimber .22 conversion kit. I cannot identify who makes the frame, the serial number starts out NBTxxxxx. I have found only the serial number and an R on the bottom of the grip as the only marking. Any help would be appreciated. It feels like a good, solid frame, I am just curious of the manufacturer. Thanks!

it looks really utilitarian to me, and in that regard looks very nice. Don't get rid of it. Get it checked by a smith I bet it would be worth getting a slide put on it.

I have no real idea about value of 1911s, but I know that front strap checkering isn't cheap, and ambis aren't usually put on without a reason.

Looks a little like a Charles Daly (not entirely certain of this of course...just "looks like")

No idea.

The 3rd pic looks like it has a series 80 style lift lever.

frame looks pretty "clean" of markings.

Kinda reminds me of a Nighthawk. Who makes their frames?

Maybe "R" as in Remsport?

Sort of looks like it was set up as a MEUSOC replica, with that round hammer and old style beavertail.

I know Dave Berryhill makes MEUSOC replicas but they do not use that kind of ambi safety.

Is that alphabet letters I see along the left back frame under the grip area ? Where is the serial # located ? it did'nt look like you blanked it out in the usual area. Very nice looking frame !

Yes I didn't see a serial number either. If it doesn't have one it is unlawful to own. It appears to be a few years old as the rail over the slide stop is still intact.

I'm pretty certain it is a Taurus PT1911 frame, the serial number on mine starts off with "NB" also, also has the same checkering underneath the trigger guard, and the trigger has the one big hole in the middle and two smaller holes top and bottom, checkering on the front strap looks identical also, and the hammer looks like the factory taurus 1911 hammer. Just to confirm, can you take pic looking at the top of the hammer to see if it has the taurus hammer locking thingy? is the serial number on the dust cover?

If it is a taurus frame the SN (and just a SN)would be on the left side of the dust cover. An area not shown in the pics.

yep, i'm pretty sure if the OP calls taurus he can confirm it is a taurus frame.

Three threads asking the same question are in violation of forum rules.
