1911: interchangeable parts?

You know how people seem to mix and match AR-15 components from different manufacturers to build their ideal AR, be it for parts or cost or both.

What about 1911s. They are all essentially the same design, as I understand it, so are bits interchangeable?

Most specifically could, say, Ruger, STI or Colt 1911 mags or recoil spring guide rods fit something like a Norinco 1911.

(I don't have any of these, but if I ever got a 1911 it would be the Norinco: half the price of the others and seemingly still a decently built piece...)
When the right to effective self-defence is denied, that right to self-defence which remains is essentially symbolic.

Karma. Another word for revolver: because what goes around, comes around!
