Yes, I noticed the sights immediately.

Very cool. I was fortunate enough to do most of that tour in person in Dec 2019, but we weren't allowed to see the 1911 processing.

I predicted many moons ago that they would be generally in poor condition due to climate, usage, and the PI being a poor country.

Saw quite a 1911's that looked like original finish in there. Also saw many frames with no slide, and slides with no frames, plus a lot of spare parts. So are some of these being put together by the CMP? Somebody is going to put them together, and it won't be the Army this time?? It looks like they have a lot of pistols in those boxes. It would have been nice if those who could. would have been able to pick out their pistol. Kind of like with the rifles being it's a one only. Oh well. Nice video though!

So down the road what will be the more collectable, an unmarked rebuild by CMP or other unknown, or a refinished mixmaster from a known rebuild facility such as A, B, ANAD, SA etc.??



Another I would ask: Have all the rebuilt SG pistols individually packaged in card board boxes and left crated undisturbed since rebuild dried up???


Opinions any one.

Personally, as a collector, I would value a mix-master from known army facility, as more valuable than a unit assembled by the CMP themselves.

That being said, I'll be happy to just get 1 if I can
