There are two more M45A1 kits due within the next 6-months....


A full Nova aluminium CNC kit with all control parts included, and a full-steel version w RS grips from Papago Arms..


First up though should be the Colt Series 70 Gold Cup aluminium kit from Nova including competition trigger ;)

The Papago kits are really nice but the price matches the level of detail of the kits. I would not be able to justify it. Especially not if that full steel kit is for TM system which can only use slim 1911 magazines and gas :o

Squad, do you know if the Papago will have Nova-style on-frame rails? Have you seen the Trigger Happy M1911A1 and Series 70 kits?

Hey PS,


The Papago version will indeed have the full-rail frame also known as advanced.......


Yes I saw the Trigger Happy/Detonator steel 1911 kits and spoke with them about it....


The TH 1911A1 now includes the new barrel-link set-up allowing quicker/smoother action and less chance of barrel-chamber wear.

Nova have no plans to copy this new system just yet.

The TH S70 steel kit was basically made in a very small batch mainly by pre-Orders from people who had bought the 1911A1.

They are both very nice kits, but sadly fit into the highest-end price category similar to FPR who've just released their steel SFA V10.

I guess the only slight gripe I'd have about the TH steel kits is the trademarks, the font-Size or debt just doesn't look quite right...


As both these kits are restricted to the Korea/Taiwan market due to steel handgun kits being illegal in Japan,

there may be a further release of aluminium versions later in the year through Enten in Japan.


The Nova M45A1 kit including parts will be coated with either CeraKote or Gun Kote.....

The next 2 Nova 1911s should be the Gold Cup and M45A1, the WC Pro has been delayed until Xmas16.
