    Randall 1911 Parts?

    Looking for Randall 1911 beavertail (marketing upgrade version), slide stop, and grip saftey. Slide stop and grip saftey can be extended version or military. Thank you and please let me know if you might have any of these components.

    The Randall was built as a milspec unit, so any competent gunsmith can fit whatever part you wish for you.

    Thanks for your reply. Yes, I understand Randalls were largely mil-spc, but many were upgraded with extended slide stops/grip safeties from Randall as a marketing upgrade. I have two A131s - one with extended components and the other mil-spec.

    But, more importantly, I recently acquired a LeMay (later model w flat-top and Millett sights) - somewhere down the line, someone put on after-market stainless slide stop & grip safety - looks like crud. AND... they put on a modern beavertail with the wrong radius cut - so, looks worse than crud.... Want to "restore" the LeMay without modifying the frame. I've see Wilson Combat offers new mil-spec stainless BTGS - but would rather have vintage parts.

    Hoping this community might have these parts somewhere...know sourcing Randall parts is nearly impossible. Been looking at vintage Colt parts - which may be the only option.

    Thank you for your consideration and any recommendations.

    And, yes, I'm a gunsmith - been building custom 1911s for about 20 years and have restored vintage firearms previously.

    Thank you again.

    Awesome - good to know. I know there was a cache of OEM Randall parts sold off not too many years ago, but for the life of me can't remember who bought them. You've probably already checked w/Numrich - that would be about the only one I'd know to try.

    Anyone know who mfg for the Randall 1911 paddle grip safety was? They have a "V" relief on the top. Looking to purchase on for a restoration.
