Just wondering. I have seen some sweet upper halves. Wondering if there was any way to source a frame or lower half. Thanks.

The frame is the part with the serial number on it. Therefore the answer is no. You can buy everything on Gun Broker, except the frame. If you could buy a frame it would need to go through an FFL.

Why do you ask? If I can be so bold.

The frame is the part the ATF usually considers to be the gun - it's the regulated part. You can buy barrels, triggers, hammers, etc., without paperwork, but buying a frame is the key to needing to fill out an ATF form and have the transfer go through a dealer.

I've seen 1911 frames pretty regularly, because lots of people like to do personal builds of The Handgun. You can probably find Glock frames too, but I wouldn't know because I have no use for Glocks. A PT9x series frame is going to be a tough search.
