I noticed I had a tiny chunk missing from my slide stop on my TRP 1911, but I can't tell if this is normal. Can you TRP owners check yours and tell me if you guys have this? Also, what are all these extra parts for?

Everything except that last photo looks right. Those are your tools not extra parts. PM me for details.

"Extra parts" are
1)ILS keys
2)MSH take down pin (or you'll lose you're internal parts when you remove the ILS)
3)Allen wrench for grips or sights depending on size.
4)????

Wamphyri has got it...

Was there a manual in the box? Might want to start there as it also shows you what they are and how to use them.

All the extra parts
These are for the locking feature on your Mainspring Housing. Look on your backstrap of your Mainspring housing, you will find a circle with 2 dots in it that these keys fit. That circle rotates to lockdown your Mainspring Housing to "lock" the pistol.

This part is for when your Mainspring Housing is removed from the pistol. You will see a small hole on the upper right of your MSH, on a Colt design that hole would have a pin in there to keep the mainspring contained during disassembly. With Springfield's design, you have to insert this piece to capture it.

The allen key could be for a few different things, could be to adjust your rear sight if yours is adjustable, or it could be to help your takedown to disassemble your recoil plug.

This half cylinder polymer piece is actually a discontinued part by Springfield (very unfortunate) it helps greatly during your take down. Ot helps when you attempt to take the recoil spring assembly out of the pistol, you compress the spring and the guide rod that then protrudes out the front of the pistol, you click that piece into place to keep it compressed allowing you to remove it.

I don't think the little chunk missing from the slide stop serrations is "normal" but I think it is just a common manufacturing blemish. I have pretty much the same kind of thing on my rear slide serrations. At least for you it is only on the slide stop. If it bothers you that much, you can always buy a new slide stop. Might be a nice time to upgrade to a bar stock one anyway.

If you dump the guide rod and the ILS, those parts will become extra parts (except maybe the sight adjustment wrench).

The blemish on the slide stop lever is a ding...likely from being banged against something in manufacture, shipping or even when put on display at the store.

If I'd seen it on initial inspection, I would have asked to store to make it right by either getting another for me, producing an after market one, or adjusting the price for a replacement. After taking it home, you're likely SOL. You might have even done it unexpectedly...that's what a store would say.
