Another barrel will fit but all barrels should be fitted taking care to meet minimum safety criteria. MIlSpec GOvt 1911 parts are relatively interchangeable but still barrel fit should be checked especially if you are fitting an aftermarket barrel (many are slightly oversize to allow fitting). The function can be affected if the barrel fit is not correct. While any single stack magazine should fit any 1911 form factor pistol, some magazines work better than others in some pistols, depending on certain factors. It is always a good idea to test out a new magazine and fire a couple hundred rounds or so thru it prior to using it as a primary mag.
