For holding it in a vice as in a normal bench vise for hand work I like the one by SDM Fabricating as you can hold the frame at different angles.

1911 Frame Holding Fixture

I am assuming that's what you meant. The one posted by Dave is for use in a milling machine and it is nice but won't do much good for a bench vise. To my knowledge Yavapai makes a slide jig not a frame one, and again it is more for use in a milling machine.

SDM's frame fixture is very nice, cleanly done.
if your hand checkering or contouring etc it's a great tool.

(his firing pin stop tool is a Gem also!!)

But if Milling work is in your future, Id say your plate would be better suited.
