Default New (to me) CMP 1911 questions

Hi guys!
Got my 1911 today. Ithaca frame Sn 1878xxx. I was a little disappointed that it's wearing a replacement slide and barrel. I'd like to try to find an Ithaca slide to put on it, at least for display. This slide is sort of roughly machined and is pretty generic looking. About how much are Ithaca slides going for and where (other than this forum) should I be looking?
Secondly, when looking up the SN, it's a bit confusing. I found a bunch of charts that say it's 1944, but also have 1945 SN's overlapping. Which is it?
Finally, can anyone recommend a website to identify small parts? For example, there is at least one website that cones to mind that lists drawing numbers stamped on parts and when they were used for my M1. Is there a similar site for 1911 stuff?
Thanks!

Default Best advice I can give you John

For $35 dollars you cannot go wrong

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/18...ref_=pd_gw_unk


1878137 was shipped September 21, 1944 to the officer in charge Of Naval supply depot
1878144 -1881793 shipped on the same date to the Naval supply depot Norfolk Va.
Possibly you have a navy 1911 A1 it is definitely a 1944 model and the information I got was out of page 124 of the Clawson collectors guide
Slides are available 500$ and up seen anywhere from 2-3 per year on gunbroker
A high standard barrel would be correct for your pistol

For identifying parts on M1911’s and 1911A1’s Joe Poyer’s book is great! And cheap to boot!
