Yes, I got the call from my friends at the local pawnshop, they had this old 1918 warhorse that no one wanted to touch. It was all original GI parts but a bad reblue, ground off US Prop marking. I told them when they needed to make room call me I want the barrel and the grips. Well the rest is history.

We should probably have a moment of silence..............Okay.


Point is the parts I dont need I posted on my web pages so drop me an email if you looking for something, images are posted as well.

Cheers

Ty, is that the one in the shop up in Bothell? If so I know which one you're looking at. The "US Property" markings were likely ground off long before WW2, as back then it was illegal to possess a government-owned 1911. That gun has admittedly seen a LOT of wear and tear. I don't even think the barrel is original, but I also only looked at it once. Like you I thought about the spare parts, but the guy wanted way too much for it.

Yup thats the one. I got him down about 25%with the 1918 dated holster....You are correct on the barrel it is a WWII Colt era.

All parts where 1911 except barrel and the 1924-30s full checker Colt stocks which went on my Argentinean Colt.
