I looked at midway but their site is hard to navigate for me. I think I may have their paper catalog somewhere.
What is the best place to get small parts and affordable.
I need in stainless:
safety (probably GI)
Grip safety (GI)
standard slide stop
MSH flat
old style wide spure hammer, or at least GI style SS hammer.

I think I found Colt parts pretty cheap before, I thought at midway.

Check Harrison Design, he makes really nice stuff. Brownells has a nice selection of quality merch too..

It seems like I've bought as much stuff from Midway as I have from Brownell's for the 1911. Check both. That's what I do.

Brownells has a good selection. You can order one of their 1911 catalogs for free. Sometimes it is nice to have a paper catalog to flip through. You will probably find some things that you did not know existed!

You will...you might find more than the wife will accept.

If you want GI parts, look for the tables at gun shows that reek of cosmoline and have lots of strange plastic bins. That's where I get all my GI thumb safeties.

I rehabilitated my worn out Colt Series 80 with parts from Cylinder & Slide, great stuff and my 1911 runs better than new.

I was amazed at Brownells catalog. I only ordered a few things from them last year and BOOM! - here is a big ass gun parts catalog in my mail box. My wife gave me the dirty looks as she knows I'll be looking though that catalog for things she thinks I shouldn't have. Ha! When I saw the 1911 parts section it got me thinking of building a pistol. And if not building one at least buying aftermarket parts to tweak a factory 1911 to what I want it to be.
