    the frist things that jump out at me are the trigger, mainspring housing , and grip safety . The photo is not big enough to see if proper slidestop , safety , or hammer are there oh and also arnt the grip panels wrong for a 1911 shouldnt they be plastic ? i really cant remember offhand

    original magazine had a lanyard loop(in adition to the loop on the mainspring housing),The 1911 had a long trigger the gun in picture has a short trigger. the grip safety,mainspring housing and hammer are from 1911a1
