Default RI 9mm GI extra parts?

Hey guys, I've been searching high and low for RIA's 1911 9mm GI hammer and trigger. I figure those would be the first parts to be replaced but no one seems to be selling it. Does any one know where I could find the old school hammer spur and solid metal trigger that comes with the RIA 1911 9mm GI model? The WTB forum never works for me. I used the search tool with no luck. Thanks guys

Oh and I checked midway, they have all these fancy triggers and hammers but none look like the ones from the GI model. Thanks

Brownells is a better site to look for gun parts compared to Midway.

Spur Hammer

Solid Trigger

Thanks, tried it but it sent me to their web site where they don't sell it. I'm afraid I'll have to get the parts fitted if I buy the after market stuff. I want to stick with ria oem parts. I'll keep looking. Thanks everyone.

I have a STI spartan, It comes with a commander hammer and a plastic trigger. I'm not so fond of them. I prefer the old hammer spur as it's easier to cock along with the look of a solid trigger. Does anyone know if the .45 model is compatible with the 9mm model?

This leads to the question of why you need to "cock" your 1911. It should be cocked from loading it and if being put into Condition 2 that is a VERY BAD practice; Condition One and only or Condition 3 if required. Now if its for dry firing practice only that's fine if you want to replace the hammer, although personally I don't find it a big deal to cock a Commander hammer for dryfiring, or if you just prefer the spur hammer (which won't work with a beavertail grip safety if you have one).

The 9mm and .45acp 1911's share the same hammers, sears, triggers and disconnectos although extractor, barrel, magazines, recoil springs, slides, slide stops and firing pins are different, along with the feed ramp on the frame.

it appears that you have to log in to their site to be able to purchase anything. Did you create an account before attempting to purchase ?

Maybe give them a call.
