After much searching, we have found that Fusion Firearms, out of Venice, Florida, offers the quality and selection of 1911 parts and kits that we have been looking for. Fusion Firearms is a one-stop-shop for high-end 1911 pistols and parts.

Class Description:

This course is all-inclusive. Students will work with our Gunsmiths and Armorers to build their own 1911 handgun. The course fee will include all of the parts, instruction time, and use of the appropriate tools necessary to build a reliable and safe 1911 chambered in 9mm luger, .45 ACP, or 10mm (depending on the model).

NOTE: The offered price is only valid if the students use our provided components (which are high quality). If students desire to upgrade any components on their firearm, they will be subject to paying for the increased amount for that item. 

In this course, students will learn:

  • The proper names of the components of a 1911
  • The cycle of operations of a short recoil system
  • The theory behind this operating system
  • The correct tool usage specific to 1911  platforms
