    I got ahold of Colt, after a week of calling, and verified the P/Ns for the nine different 1911 parts that I’m looking to buy. Almost all are out of stock. They won't even take my backorder. They suggested Brownells and Midway.

    Turns out that those two suppliers are backordered from 2-8 weeks. I could buy WilsonCombat or other parts but really want to stay with Colt items.

    I've done a nation wide search on Craigslist, Google, Yahoo, Amazon, Ebay and GunBroker.

    Does anyone have a local or national source?
    Is there a gunsmithing site where people have swapped parts and the gunsmith sells off the unused parts? :huh:

    I'm looking for brushed stainless parts for a Defender but alot of other brushed SS Colt 1911 parts fit.
