I'm picking up a c.1933 Colt 1911 in 38 Super.

Anyone have one?
Any special thoughts?

It is semi-inherited and has not been shot much in the past 45 years.

I will have the opurtunity to shoot on Sunday, what should I look for?

Also getting a .30 caliber Luger

The older .38 Supers had somewhat iffy accuracy due to the method of headspacing used back then. If you want to have an accurate .38 Super, put a Barstow barrel in it since it will then headspace like the 1911 on the case mouth.
