More "correct" parts for Springfield GI 1911A1

I'm looking for a GI thumb safety, short wide checkered hammer, and checkered mag release for my Springfield GI 1911A1.

Auto Ordnance has all those replacement parts for their 1911A1 "clone" for pretty cheap. I just don't know anything about the quality. I know they aren't Wilson or EGW, but are they decent? The only other options are either more expensive (Wilson, EGW, C&S) or John Masen.

Anyone got any knowledge of the Auto Ord stuff?

Really it's just the short wide hammer I'm having a hard time tracking down. The EGW GI safety and mag release aren't crazy expensive and they are solid steel construction so they'd be a worthwhile upgrade beyond the cosmetic aspect. The Cylinder & Slide wide spur hammer looks nice, but it's around $120 in the white and would need reshaped before finishing since its the long version.

Thanks.

I've used Auto Ordnance GI thumb safety and it has been fine. DO NOT even think of John Masen.

Thanks. That's kind of the general consensus I'd read on the John Masen stuff so I'd planned to stay away.
