    I recently received a 1955 Colt Super 38 from my Grandfather. It definitely has wear marks but is in decent shape. I really don't know any thing about it. What would you estimate its value to be? Serial number is 118241 Thanks
  2. USGI/Foreign Military and other Vintage 1911s
    I just purchased this Colt 1911. I’m not real familiar with them. So here is my question. I looks like it has been painted. According to the serial number(between 112,000-112750) it was manufactured in 1915. I don’t think it is any kind of bluing. Almost looks like platinum dip. Any help would...

  4. Nighthawk
    Hey y'all! Back again with the "rest-mod" Colt-Nighthawk. I am uploading the build sheet (with sensitive information removed), so that y'all could get a good idea of what all went into this 10 month project. As I've mentioned in previous posts, the goal was to retain as much of the original...

  6. USGI/Foreign Military and other Vintage 1911s
    Hey all! New member here. My twin brother and I managed to win two Colt 1911s at auction for our collection. I have a few questions about both of them. Below are the posted pictures. The first few are going to be of the pre-war Colt Military. The frame is 1913 military, serial number 56548. The...

  8. Revolvers
    Found it along with a 1911A1 locked up by my grandpa for about 70 years or so in a box I just cut open with an angle grinder. Serial number 315xxx i believe it’s 1921. Chambered in .38-40, Maybe 5-1/2” Barrel. Original blued (don’t believe refinished). I can’t find any information about it’s...
  9. USGI/Foreign Military and other Vintage 1911s
    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...
  10. Reloading Bench
    Hello y'all, I'm planning on hand loading for my 1911s soon for the very first time. At this point I've only loaded for rifle. I could use some of your pistol loading experience. Which L.E. Wilson case gauge would you recommend, the Min or Max gauge? MidwayUSA has both. Note that all of my...
  11. USGI/Foreign Military and other Vintage 1911s
    I’ve posted photos above. I’ve picked up a RR for a fairly fine price, for Massachusetts, anyway. Serial no. Mid 2million dates it to 1945. All seems tight and right but I didn’t look at it as closely as I would have liked and may have missed some things and I’m fairly new to 1911s to begin...

  13. Colt
    Hello all, I am new to 1911's. Learned a lot about them in the past few weeks, though. I am in the market of buying a 1911. I really like the look of the all stainless guns but I have found a local used 50th Anniversary DEA Series 70 from 1980 that has really caught my eye. Overall gun looks to...
  14. Colt
    I'm looking for a Colt branded gun rug to store my Colt series 80 government .45 ACP. The Colt web site only has the 8" rug, I think I need a 10". I found one site, ttenitl.com, but not good feelings about the site, they default ship to Canada and the product descriptions are in Chinese, then...
