I have a 1911A1 with a Remington Rand upper, Colt lower. Circa 1943. Very nice rack grade from the CMP. Would a complete restoration improve the value? Would it hurt the collectability? Your thoughts please.(i don’t need any trolls, thank you.)

How much do you intend to shoot it? If only a box or two on occasion you're worrying about nothing. If you intend to put thousands of rounds a year through it then yes a hardened slide will be better, but you should keep the current slide just to preserve its current condition.
Thanks DSK. I was only curious about the value of restoration vs. the sentimental value. I’m going to keep the pistol as is.
