Anyone know if there's a local (twin cities area, a bit outside of it works too) store that sells/stocks gun parts, like 1911 extractors, ejectors, barrels, etc?

Or am I SOL and need to order from Brownell's...

Just thought I'd ask...would rather drive to pick up some parts than place an order and have to wait a few agonizing days.

Armored Fire used to carry all the Wilson 1911 parts. I'm not sure since the changeover to Bill's North, but it might be worth a call.

EE, LMK if you need any AR15 parts. I have spares if you need them.

Right now I need (well...ok, really want) to get this 1911 running to the point where I would carry it without hesisitation...it's taking some tweaking (kinda expected on a 50+ year old piece)...

I haven't even gotten into modding my AR's yet

If you want to get a 1911 running to where you would trust it with your life, my suggestion is to take it to Randy at Territorial Gunsmiths (952-931-9451). Have him give it a tune up and know everything is done right. 1911 extractors can be a pain to tune without the correct tools.
