my two primer worth:
fitting a 1911 parts can actually be dangerous when it comes to sear and disconnector. improperly fitted parts (takes skill and experience) can lead to slam fires or runaway full auto which worst case can land ya in jail. happened to a guy in milwaukee 25 miles from me last year. tried making his own 1911 it went runaway on the range some asshat reported him to the batf even tho he had informed the range he was testing hand fitted guns he still ended up on trial.
not for the weak of heart.
if you wanna roll your own 1911 baby steps first buy a 1911 built then try some simple slide/frame lapping. and work your way up. starting cold feet not a good idea.
usually companies like colt baer etc make their smiths have years of experience on the 1911 before they are comfy turning em loose.
ive taken the army course on them before they went m9. i still take my 1911's to an experienced smith to have some things done. i personally wouldnt attempt it. AR15 no problem just slap em together.
