    I have a penchant for older 1911's. I can't really afford one and if I had it I'd probably just put it in the safe until I decided that it's stupid to not shoot a gun and then sell it (I'm NOT a collector). As such I have decided that I'd like to find some older parts and put them on a newer frame/slide or pistol and make a resto-mod.
    Are there any shops reasonably close to Allen that might have older parts kicking around?
    Thanks in advance for any help given.

    I did exactly this to my Cimarron (a retro -pre A1 1911). The parts I needed were the trigger, slide catch, safety lever & hammer.

    Phone your local gunsmiths… I didn’t find the parts I needed “off the shelves”.

    It's been a very long time since I there, but in th neighborhood of Webb Chapel and Beltline, there was a small shop that had pieces parts of all kinds. At the time I was last there, they had a lot of revolvers and 1911s on display for sale. Other than that, I'm no help for your neck o' the woods.
