I have a Gov't Colt 1911 that was born in 1918 and never issued. At some point in its life it went back to the armory for refurbishing (parkerized, etc.) but was still never issued. It is basically NIB. I would like to have a customized 1911 but can't decide if I would be better off leaving this pistol as-is and just finding another to "play" with. The pistol would be used for recreational purposes and possibly for home defense. No need to carry as I have a Glock 19 for that. Your opinions appreciated.
