Just found a bag of parts. 1911 colt 22 conversion unit 22 long rifle. It contains: 2 clips, slide, spring, barrell, arm that holds slide and frame together and flat bar that locks into side of barrell. Missing is the piece that goes over spring and the lock on the end of the barrell. Is there anything else missing? Can i put this all together and put it on my old 1911 45 remington made in 1943? Probably a stupid question, but i am a rookie! Also in the bag was a colt mk iv model 80 slide, spring, barrell and barrell lock. Will these interchange? Thanks

Me thinks that from your description that you need the recoil spring guide and plug, and a barrel bushing.
Yes it should work on the Remington Rand
The Series 80 slide will interchange as long as it does not have the firing pin safety plunger & spring installed.

You know what, that didn't dawn on me.
So technically nothing is missing, the aforementioned parts were used from the parent pistol.

Colt included the barrel bushing with the introduction of the MK IV Series 70.

Just got back from shooting the 1911. Loaded one clip with 22 LR cci and the other clip with 22 LR remington ammo. All things were Rock & Roll! No misfires no hang ups. Shoots great! THANKS AGAIN

Other than hearing the name I know nothing about Ed's Red. Some of the floating chambers have a tendency to lead up and quit working, and the Break-Free helps prevent this. I would think the Ed's would have a tendency to be thinner than what you would want on the floating chamber.
