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.)

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?

Lastly, restore it to what condition? Back to it's original USGI issue configuration in 1943?
