I think it is a $1000 item. Like other have said maybe $1200 to the right person. I see very few sub $1000 U.S. Property Marked 1911's for sale or that have sold. What does the CMP COA have to do with anything? They were all US Property at some time.

When did they stop doing the Nitre/Fire Bluing on parts on these early guns? I was looking at a 1912 Colt and those parts really jumped out. I'm guessing the military asked them for a different finish?

Why does a CMP auction Garand sell for 5-10X what it would on the street? Answer that, and you've answered your question.

There's a big difference between a potentially Bubba-created mixmaster 1911 and one that has provenance of coming out of US possession as a mixmaster.

CMP Garand and Carbine auction results and regular sales are not the same thing in the real world. This is the only place they sell for 5 to 10x the value. I have seen many times buyers in the marketplace trying to resell their auction item and taking a hit. To each his own a mixmaster is a mixmaster.

That was exactly my point. Why wouldn't it apply to 1911s?

Auction prices and local prices are not interchangeable. Auction prices are ********ing matchs with fat wallets and are not street prices. Over the last few decades I have seen inflated auction guns sell for one half to one third less than what they were bought for. Auction prices are not the standard value!

Can he shoot that one as any other 1911 in that era? If he bought it for a shooter would it be ok, as far as the slide? Or any other components if it were original. tx

Saw the pistol a couple days ago. Seller has found the original grips. Pistol is in very nice shape. Didnt have any time to do a detailed strip of it.
