1911 pro retro questions

Does anyone know what parts in this 1911 are either MIM or cast? I don't have anything against these parts just want to know. Love the look of the gun, ejection port looks classically high and wondering about any possible issues with ejection.
Thanks for any help folks!

I bought a group of fresh take off parts from a Fusion frame assembly. Everything is clearly MIM/cast except the trigger bow. The parts I have are of decent, even nicely finished and quality...but they are what they are.

The wording in the description of the Pro Retro doesn’t indicate barstock internals but a call to Fusion would clear things up.
The modern production 1911 - high visibility sights, beavertail grip safety, aluminum trigger, good trigger pull, enhanced slide/ frame fit, accurized barrel/bushing fit. If itís not a Kimber, itís a copy.

The Retro's are built on the Pro-Series line, the frames and slides are forged, then CNC machined. No MIM is used in any of the custom shop Pro-Series Builds.
