Self Install? S&A Magwell, EGW firing pin stop, Safety?
How difficult is it to install an S&A Magwell/MSH, a tactical safety, and an EGW flat bottomed firing pin stop in a 1911? Are they drop-in?
Also, if I installed these myself, would a reputable pistolsmith (down the road) mind fitting them up better for me as part of a build?

S&A magwell and firing pin stop - not that hard if you are at least somewhat mechanically inclined and (for the firing pin stop) know how to use a file.
Haven't tried to install a safety, I think it needs more careful fitting for it to work as it should.

How difficult to install depends on your skill level. There is no such thing as "good enough" when installing a safety - either it functions correctly or it doesn't. As for another gunsmith working on them later, that also depends on your skills. If you remove too much metal it can be difficult (and expensive) to put it back.
