Midway (http://www.midwayusa.com/find?&sortby=1&itemsperpage=20&newcategorydimensionid=1676), Brownell's (http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/avs%7CMake_3=1911/Products/1911/), and CDNN (http://www.cdnninvestments.com/1911foncolsi.html). <-- All names are clickable links to their 1911 parts pages.
Keep in mind that many 1911 parts such as the hammer must be carefully hand fit to each individual weapon, and usually don't just "drop in." Because of this, the parts are usually a bit oversized to allow for the hand fitting.

f-111 I understand. I wasn't gong to be doing the work myself... My hands aren't steady enough for it.
