Just a footnote: Based on the thumb safety design, the Eagle emblem on slide, and other clues (including the paperwork and list price), I'd be pretty confident that all parts in this 1911 are BP.

As to SGs (specifically SGs; as non-SGs are a different story), my best recollection is that the upgrade to the "new" ambi-safety (and 100% BP parts) was made in about year 2010, possibly a few months earlier (in 2009). Base invoice price of Classic SG was well under $5,000 in those days!

The similar BP upgrade on non-SGs came out just a few years later.
