    I used colts website to look up the serial number, it came back to a 1944 colt 1911A1. I see on the Frame the inspector was F.J.A. Which was an inspector for Ithica and Remington Rand 1911A1s. So I’m kind of confused about that, also the slide is Colt. I see no stamps to show it was reworked...

    I know this question is probably asked alot but I'm new to the 1911 world. Any one know when this was manufactured and the appropriate value? Serial No 265338. I tried to look it up on Colts website but the result is 1918 and it doesn't make sense to me. Was it restored some time after that and...
