  1. Colt
    Hello everyone. Very new here and have been overwhelmed with all the awesome information I have already received from this site! Was wondering if anyone has a Colt WW1 reissue and think it’s worth what they are commanding as of late (if you can find one) I really want one but have not found one...

    Hey gang - I have a colt lower with a Remington Rand upper from the CMP. It is in really great shape. I’d like to get a Colt upper to match my frame - 1943 date. Trade or negotiate, whatever. Anyone interested? Jamo
  3. USGI/Foreign Military and other Vintage 1911s
    Hey Everyone, I am pretty solid on modern weapons but trying to figure out a price on a Colt 1911 U.S. Army 1942 piece is way over my head. The range of prices on these things are insane so I figure I should try the experts. Any help on an appraisal on this one would be appreciated. Thank you!

    Hi all So just found a colt 1911 here in south africa my first 1911 and first firearm ever. The gun is old but in working condition there is a lot of stamps and engravings on it. I did a lookup on colts website and the serial number comes back as: Year of Manufacture 1943 Model MODEL 1911A1...
  5. Gunsmithing & Troubleshooting
    I have a 70 series colt that I have issues with. The first issue is that it double feeds and also it doesn’t eject the casing most of the time I broke down the issue to the lower receiver. Should I just change the ejector and call it a day. I’ve already swapped uppers with my other 70 series...
  6. General Gun Discussion
    Hello everyone! I was hoping I could gain some insight on a 1911 I was recently given by my late grandfather. I can’t seem to find any information about it in google. I have attached a photo of the gun. The slide is a Colt MK 4 series 70 with a Para Ordinance double stack frame. Any information...
  7. Colt
    How many of these and other versions were made? Loving mine…going to start edc’n it soon - or at least enter it into the rotation. Only change has been the grips.
  8. Other 1911's
    I just left the pawn shop with this Norinco 1911A1 with serial 301679. From what I've read, it appears to be an early 1990s import. I've done a ton of research and found that it's quite a rare gun and made of forged steel 😁. The only part that appears to have been changed out is the barrel. It...

    Well well well. Here's a doozy. Wild claims aren't just restricted to used car salesmen- they also come from gun peddlers. How many differences between the two can you spot? Rack number scrubbed...barrel...grips... Also, I'm not even sure the slide is original to the frame although it hasn't...

    Someone wants to trade me a 1911 colt .45 acp. It would come with everything original and a 9.25 dillon barrel and spring with a colt 9mm slide and a 10mm fusion barrel with 5 10mm mags. My question is do you think the gun is safe? Is there anything I should know? Would it be better to have a...
  11. Colt
    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
  12. 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...

  14. 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...

  16. 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...

  18. 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...
  19. 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 Ithaca 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...
