    Look at the slide stop in post #11 and note that there are more serrations.

    Just in case you're contemplating installing the parts, the piece is now, and has been a rebuild, and no amount of 'all-Colt' parts will ever change that fact.

    For purely personal reasons Iím replacing parts with correct parts. The slide stop isnít even the same color as the rest so thatís got to go. If I donít like the looks of my guns, Iíll make them pleasing to me and donít really care about what anyone else says, and I donít care about collector value. By the time they will be collectable, Iíll be long dead and past caring. Life is short and itís all about me nowadays, but thanks for commenting.

    I've mailed my money in a few times on the CMP lottery. I received some nice specimens and some not so nice specimens. But they were all USGI.

    I would leave it as you received it, not change any parts out, and just enjoy shooting it. Also, put the certificate in a safe place in case you ever decide to sell it.

    I almost had a dog in the race. But decided there were too many hoops to jump through and didn't want to spend the money they were asking for them at the time.

    You received a descent looking 1911.

    My mild OCD will not let me keep the offending part on the gun. That aggression will not stand. I donít worry about resale. I never sell anything but all the swag that came with it, stays in the case.

    Just_Alex82nd,
    I understand your point of view. I would probably switch out the slide stop myself were I in your position too.

    I'd change out the slide stop for a matching one as well, aesthetics are important.
    Cheers,
