That's sweet. I'd run a shok buffer and a fresh recoil spring with that 1911 slide on there.

Thanks for the heads up.
I'll add it to the list.

Wow. That slide... What a huge win, I'd restore it if I got that lucky.

Thanks. Exactly my thoughts but I love the patina on it.
I plan on having my Smith swap in new night sights, since these are dead and some other tasteful mods/restoring.

I was thinking more along the lines of ditching the aftermarket parts. I'm not an expert, but that's a early hard to find slide. More fitting for a 1911 or transition pistol.

Interesting. Any idea what time period the slide is from?
I was having a difficult time narrowing it down without a serial number. Thanks!

Unless you get a 1911 that has GWOT paint, chances are itís either a police return, or a military competition gun. All will be GTG, but if you score a GWOT pistol, you won the lottery.

As I mentioned, they got standard GI replacement parts. There was a test conducted stateside to test them out, and they had the standard GI sights. Mods to the sights would have happened later, and there could have been quite a few.
