It will fit mostly all 1911 frames.  The only issue i've seen was when i had rails of a gun peened. A problem that rarely occurs is the nelson magazines not working with hi catch mag catches.

I haven't had a problem yet.  Used JEM, STI, Springfield Armory & Colt.  No issues at all.  As Chris said you need a standard mag catch if you're using the mags that come with the conversion.

Works fine with my old Springfield Milspec. But, could not get it to work with a RIA that I bought to make it a dedicated lower. I talked with Larry, he sent springs, and tried to help, but to no avail. The RIA must be a little out of spec.

I just made the Springfield the dedicated lower, sold the RIA, and bought a wadgun off this forum. All is well.

I prefer the Sig Saur mags that was suggested here also. Easier to load, don't need insert that pin to pull the follower down. I lost that pin the first match I shot with it, it rolled off the table, and the shooters next to me helped look, but it was gone forever. I was using a drill bit until I got the Sigs.

My dedicated lower is a frame from a Springfield Range Officer. Needed the right hammer spring and a standard type (non ILS) mainspring housing. Works great. Very accurate little gun.
