Hi, I just got a Defender and want to know what parts I can get for it, as far as will it take regular 1911 stuff...beaver, safety, extractor, trigger...?
I get confused over the diff. series and their compatability.
If you want to retain the S80 firing pin block, you need S80-specific: hammer, extractor, firing pin, firing pin stop, and grip safety. The magazines, grip panels, and the mainspring housing and its associated parts should be "Officers size". The recoil spring and rod are specific to the Defender. I think all the other parts are "1911" parts.
