I do have to wonder why Colt 1911s were pulled for auction. If they were correct that would be something, but a Colt 1911 with plastic grips is simply a mixmaster isn't it? Not complaining, just think it might be a stretch.

Most of the M1911's are 100 years old and should be seen as collector-guns. Not refinished in the 1970's and are unique. I carried a M1911 in the Army Reserve for many years and had a tough time qualifying with it, hammer bite is real. Fun pistols for sure.

Over the last few months there have been posts of 1911A1's that were received that really should have gone to auction. The ones with the rare inspector stamp and a few original finish Colts with the correct slide for the serial number range.
