Im in the process of building a true left handed 1911. I have all the parts I need except for the slide, ejector, and firing pin stop. Does anyone know of anyone that may have these parts? Or does anyone know who can make them for me? I can make the ejector myself if anyone can sell me a "blank" ejector. Same thing goes for the firing pin stop. Thanks for the help in advance.

Call EGW and ask for some unfinished parts.
No help on a slide...

Gunsmith... didn't you have a similar post in the Colt forums earlier this month - but still needed a frame? Did you find a frame at Caspian? They didn't have any slides left huh?

There's a company in the Netherlands, Drummen I think, that makes a left hand gun... and I believe they make their own slide.

Yes Drummen has build one for his own use and milled the slide himself. the price of the gun is about 2x times a Chambers Custom bullseye wadgun. the frame is righthanded.

I believe Joe Chambers has a few original lefthanded Colt 1911's (check his facebook or maybe on his website)
