My first 1911......a 1914 Colt 1911 bring back from WWll. I still have it!! I paid $20 for it. I think I can come out on the deal if I decide to sell it. :biglaugh:
Wow, sorry you had to sell it. Thanks for sharing. I hope to one day get a 1911A1 from the CMP.I've got a good one for you guys. About 20 years ago I decided I wanted to own a WWII 1911A1. After searching online and at local shops I bought a really nice Remington Rand 1911A1 in all original condition with apparently original parts and original parkerizing. After some time passed and as my 1911 interests increased, I decided to research the serial number. Low and behold, it was manufactured on May 3, 1943 the day I was born!
I ended up selling it several years later when money got tight and still regret it to this day. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it. Carry on.
