I just can not understand how Baer can charge so much more then STI or Caspian. If possible stay away from Essex, too many issues with quality control.

I would suggest Fusion www.fusionfirearms.com
They have kits there with the frame,slide barrel there already fit.
here is a quote from their web site. I have bought quite a few small parts from them with good results. Contact them and discuss your need with them, they are very helpfull.
1911 Full Size frame and 5 inch slide 1911 Kit. The frames are our Extremely High Quality Pro-Series combat 1911 frame with front-strap checkering(30LPI) and undercut trigger guard. The rear of the frame is already cut for a .25 radius to accept a high-ride beavertail grip safety. The magwell is also beveled. The slide is a standard 5 inch length Forged Carbon steel with front and rear cocking serrations, Lowered and relieved ejection port, serrated target top and Novak sight cuts. Both with all machining and heat treatments complete. Kit comes with fitted slide and frame. 416 match grade barrel in 45 acp with link and pin, Recoil spring kit, Barrel bushing and slide stop.
Still Looking for ANY AR-15 parts you have laying around that I can use to complete my build

Mark2734-as I understand it, LBC machines their slides and frames after heat treating which is supposed to absolutely eliminate any warpage that other mfr.'s products may have because they machine the parts before heat treatment. Machining hardened steel is more expensive because of tooling wear.

This is not my claim or opinion, it's what I read in a gun magazine, sounds plausible anyway.

+1 on Foster Industries.
There are few gun-related problems that can't be made worse with a dremel tool.
