As I read some posts and replied to some. I read a posting from a regular here on USGI. It said you should have put that on USGI. And I want to state that this person having a pre series 70 NIB is impressive. I will never stop one or the other. Collecting Colt 1911's as long as freedom remains. And coming to this site to gather and give my experiences. Thank you for your similarity if in only one way. And anyone seen a cheap (under $7,000) Singer lately?
