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

Prewar 38 supers are very collectable (depending on condition, etc.). If I remember correctly they were brought out in 1929?, so it may still retain some of the early features. You need to find something like Sheldons book (I think) that covers the 38 super in detail. Sound like an interesting peice. If it's a shooter, older 38 super accuracy is suspect, although as a defensive piece it should still get the job done.
