Default Are full size 1911 slides interchangeable?

Are full size 1911 slides interchangeable? I'm curious because I'm doing a couple 80% frames and I'm trying to figure out what internal components to use and who to go through for the slide. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You will have to hand fit the slide to the frame. Also the upper locking lugs have to be fitted to the slide. You should post this in the "gunsmithing how to" section.

Caspian is the go-to company for slides and frames. Most slides are hand fit to a particular frame, so you cannot mix and match. Naturally, the more expensive the gun, the more hand fitting.

Thanks! I was looking as a general question. I didn't realize this was more of a technical question. I will repost a more appropriate question there.
