Midway, brownell's, maybe cylinder and slide...

Ebay! They are selling some parts now.

Just try google, you'll get so many results you'll go cross eyed. The 1911 has one of the biggest aftermarkets there is.

If your Colt is a model of the M1911 A1 it has GI style "hump and bump" sights. (front sight is a staked type)

Attachment 39788

You will need to have a gunsmith install modern sights if you want to change them.

Most modern 1911 sights are dovetailed.

should have said, mine is the .22lr version made by walther/umarex under licence by colt
