Default Nice Looking Iron

You guys have some beautiful looking shootin' iron! I hope I'm lucky enough to get chosen in the drawing...🤔 I really don't know what grade is choose but I got real lucky with my service grade M1. CMP really did me right so I'm sure they'll do the same with the 1911's!

Default USS 1911a1 Cardboard Shipping Box

That word in itself is not even accurate because all martial arms were certainly issued.

Noticed today that Rock Island Auction #525 has a Union Switch and Signal 1911a1 pistol up for auction with a card board box?

Interesting that your 1917 has the same set of grips that one of mine has.

This is my 1914 Colt 1911. The pistols appears to be in all original condition with original mint barrel and no rebuild marks. All the roll marks are crisp like it just rolled off the line. It was shipped to Commanding Officer, San Antonio Arsenal, San Antonio, Texas on September 3, 1914. It is one of my pride and joys in my collection.

Default Got mine today ...

1943 Remington Rand frame
Remington Rand slide
FJA and crossed cannons.

I'm no expert, but looks like original finish ... slight greenish coloring. Maybe someone who knows things could comment, please.

I'm pretty happy with this!
