It may require fitting. You may want to look into a Wilson Bullet Proof Slide Stop.

I need to get a new slide stop for my 1911. Somehow my current one is slightly bent and I wish to replace it.
I assume I can just order any slide stop online and it will be correct... Does this sound right?
In addition, what can I expect to pay for one?
Call Brownell's in Iowa. Ask them for their 1911 catalog. They will get one out to you pronto. Then you can check out all of the available slide stops. And read their specs as to if they are forged or cast - hardened - type of steel etc.
One huge advantage of buying from Brownell's is that if you buy a part and it doesn't fit...return it for any reason and they will refund you.
As per above WILSON would be a great one. I mostly use Ed Brown for the slide stop.
One thing that you DO need to know. That would be that if your present slide stop is bent...it shouldn't be. There should be nothing bearing heavily on the slide stop pin if the barrel is fit correctly. So rather than just trying to solve your problem by just popping in a new slide stop - you might want to have a local "smith" that is familiar with 1911s check out your firearm and make certain that the barrel is correctly fit and that your barrel link pin is the right size and that your barrel lugs are not bearing too heavily on your S S Pin.

QKShooter stole my thunder, and his advice you can take to the bank. But how did you manage to bend a slide stop???
