Boise, ID –-( Freedom Concepts Laboratory is proud to offer custom pistol builders a new option for making their own firearms, introducing the Liberty line of 80% polymer 1911 frames.

Developed by Foxtrot Mike Products Inc, the 80% frames accept standard 1911 slides, magazines, and internal parts. Bringing modern ergonomics to a 100-year-old design, the frame features different sized backstraps and generous scallop cuts to make operating the controls comfortable for shooters of all hand sizes. The reusable 80% frame jig comes with all the tools required for final manufacturing.

The Liberty MkIX, featuring a full size grip, will be available March 2018 in the following models:

• MkIX-G Government Model for a traditional 5” slide
• MkIX-Gx Extended Model for a 5” slide with a full length rail
• MkIX-O Officer Model for a traditional 4” slide
• All three models have a suggested retail price of $139

“FCL was formed to produce innovative, high quality firearm products that are within the reach of all consumers,” said Paul, CEO of FCL. “We use cutting edge materials, combined with trend setting manufacturing techniques, to push the boundaries of performance.”

In the past, custom 1911 builds have had a reputation for requiring a lot of hand fitting. Freedom Concepts Laboratory 80% frames greatly simplify this process, requiring 40% fewer parts than a standard 1911, with a patent-pending modular backstrap that captures the mainspring assembly, making it easy to finish your pistol.

All Liberty frames are set up to be completely ambidextrous. Freedom Concepts Laboratory is introducing an aftermarket 100% ambi kit, for a suggested retail of $75, however all Liberty frames come with a right-hand magazine release, and readily accept standard 1911 thumb safeties and slide stops.

All three Freedom Concepts Laboratory 80% MkIX frames will be shipping in March, available exclusively at Brownells and the Glockstore.
