Hello all - Mech Tech has been receiving an increasing interest from customers who want to leave a 'lower' on their CCU full time - that is, not having to disassemble their pistols every time they want to use the CCU. The question is 'what is the most cost-effective route to assembling a dedicated lower?'
Sources for both 1911 and Glock lowers would be appreciated. If anyone has thoughts and ideas please post. It looks like 1911 frames are all over the place but limited sources for Glock frames.
To start things off I have found this link:http://www.sarcoinc.com/5-10-09_Q.pdf
The company is Sarco and the Arsmcor frames come from the Philipines. Also it appears that Lone Wolf Distributors has a Glock frame.http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Products.aspx?CAT=3168
I have noticed frame 'kits' available - these kits generally include all the parts needed to complete the frame assembly but no actual frame. The frame itself of course requires an FFL for legal purchase but there are many licensed dealers out there happy to do the paperwork for a reasonable cost. Please let us know if you have suggestions.
