Just plan on fitting it. If you don't your thumb will get beat up. There are no "drop in" parts on 1911s. Not even magazines or ammo.

Damaging the extractor is not the issue. Dropping the slide without chambering a round batters the barrel/slide locking lugs. It's a totally unnecessary and bad habit to get into. Stripping a round...

Yup. It is very handy to be able to bend the follower a little so that is will make contact with the stop's lug. Many times a 1911 won't lock open on empty this is all that is required.

1911 triggers will ALL be different. Unless you buy a hand tuned Wilson or similar. Production guns are not tuned to any spec. You pays yer money and takes yer chances.
