KT Ordnance is your best bet. Kind of pricey though.
There are some other unfinished 9111 frames around from time to time, usually from castings, but I don't know of any sources that currently have stock on hand.

There is a group buy underway for these STI-like 80% frames on CalGuns.
Aside from some rendered CAD images, there are no pictures yet of the actual product.
Mongo, are you affiliated w/ Ares Armor?

its more sad when people like you do nothing but bitch all day long .. havent seen 1 single post from you recently that hasnt been bitching and whining and insulting people .. go buy a prostitute or something and get laid, beat her up or whatever the hell rocks your boat and come back when your mood is better, i know you can do better and that you actually have something to attribute to this forum .. but lately its just been crap coming out of you ..  and that is sad when an asset to a forum like this goes DEE DEE DEE

besides i can read .. and just looked at the link never clicked on the actual items

does he even know what he is selling? how is that a 1911 80% frame? to me it looks alot like a 2011 frame ..

and it says ON SALE 99.95 but you also have to pay additional 99.95 on delivery then it is NOT on sale for 99.95..

no goober. I order 10/22 jig and paperweight couple weeks ago, looks easier than AR15 for a start. I got email to that link a couple days ago and saw this post. Its a preorder 99 down 99 when it ships. ordered a jig and paperweight of that polymer 1911 myself.  Still want a sig too!  keep me posted on that buy.

Polymer frame? where do you read that its polymer.. ? and it still looks like a 2011 clone to me,  i can be wrong  hard to see when the only photo of it is a tiny CAD screendump thumbnail..

the Ares Rudius is an STI-like design. the grip/magwell/trigger guard portion is polymer. the rest is steel. like an STI 2011 but not interchangeable.
the pre-sale deal on the Ares website is $99 up front and $99 on delivery which is still a discount from the retail price when they hit the market.

Irrelevant garbage...  Nonsense... 

and it says ON SALE 99.95 but you also have to pay additional 99.95 on delivery then it is NOT on sale for 99.95..

Geee...  $199.90

Regularly:

$249.95

$50.05 off...  Sounds like a sale to me.   And you wonder why I can't find anything nice to say...

That's the problem with people anymore...  They read half of the introduction and think they have read the whole story...

if you got ur head out your ass and actually read what i write you could spare yourself the humiliation of presenting yourself like a jackass..

199.90 IS NOT 99.95.. when a price says "ON SALE 99.95" then that should be what it is sold for , or it should say "ON SALE 199.90" i never said there wasnt a discount ..

i allready said that i didnt read what it said further in because i am somewhat acustomed to people putting the actual price on their proiducts on their homepages , but that still does not change the fact that it is not on sale for 99.95 as it says on the first page

i dont wonder why you cant find anything nice to say .. it is very clear why, but unfortunatly for you it has nothing to do with me , maybe you was born that way or maybe the lack of getting laid made you that way .. nevertheless its not my fault and it has nothing to do with me

thats what i thought ..
i know there is a discount .. but it is not on sale for 99.95 as it initially says on the page ..

The Ares website is and has been porrly designed and worded... Many folks have been confused by that and other aspects of the pricing for this product. They're working on it.
The real question now is when will we get to see the actual product, rather than just a rendering?  ???

good to see i am not the only one who thinks that

yeah preordering a product that they never ran before , and havent even made a working prototype of yet with a time estimate of 3-6 months .. seems a bit unsure (and now im just assuming they havent made a prototype , because my logic tells me they might have put up a pic of that and not a poor renderring thumbnail) so i will wait till its an actual product , even if it costs me 50 dollars more

but its a great idea .. and the jig looks awesome and it seems like its gonna be very easy to finnish with that jig , even slide rails

there supposedly is a prototype that people (who claim not to be affiliated w/ Ares) have held in their hands. not sure why they won't post pix of at least that, they've been urged to do so but nothing yet.
i've pre-paid for the group buy (not to them but to the GB coordinator, who does not work for them) but if i don't see something soon i may cancel payment.

yeah seems strange .. a real picture would sell the item alot easier so it seems dodgy they dont use a real pic if they have a prototype ..

might just be poor business skills .. i mean their website arent that well made/formulated either , not saying theyre not erious but ill wait till i see an actual frame

anyone notice it looks alot like tacti maching jigs. So is the 10/22 jig that i bought from ares. Its a beautiful thing when there are lots of options to choose from. Only other 1911 paperweight that i found was kto.  Even ordered one from them, but i did read about long waits but nothing really negative otherwise. I just hope i get it before obamageddon.

Goober - is kto gonna modify the 1911 jig for the sig? how are the preorders taking off? I think its safe to put me down for 2 sigs

whoa TM banned member whats the story behind that one?

KTO is working on filling a GB for KT1911s right now i believe.
the KTO Sig is several months away
so is the Ares Rudius
yes KTO is making their jig so it will work for both the 1911 and Sig
the TM thing is a long story but the guy that stated the company was a member here and he and the owner of this forum had a disagreement and he was banned.
was a loss to the forum and causes all sorts of silliness with  automatic name replacements and such, but oh well.

The mysterious gold hoarder KTO doesn't disappoint. He doesn't give you directions either. I will have to send it back, when the sigs come out.  Know of any tutorials using the jig?
