What does a restoration mean to you? Are you talking about restoring your RR/Colt mixed 1911, or are you talking about restoring your Colt lower into a complete restored Colt with a Colt upper?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.)
Lastly, restore it to what condition? Back to it's original USGI issue configuration in 1943?
