My Colt M1911 was manufactured on Oct. 11, 1918 and shipped to Bush Terminal on Oct. 15, 1918. All the components look to be original to include the barrel with an interloping HP marking. The finish shows wear typical of a Black Army pistol. The grips are well worn but not as bad as the OP's. The interior of the barrel shows some spotting and corrosion. The pistol is not marked as a rebuild.

I have fired it a few times, but it is rarely fired and now primarily a display piece. I would hate to have any part fail and have to replace it with a non-original part.
