I received mine on 1/17 and just picked it up today after the mandatory waiting period.


I want to say I'm thrilled with it but I'm just meh. It's a Colt receiver with a Colt replacement slide. I'd be very happy with it if it wasn't for the mismatched parkerization of the receiver and slide. The Receiver is a phosphate gray and the slide is a manganese black. It looks very strange.

I'm also a bit surprised that the barrel has more pitting than I would expect on a Service grade. I dunno, I guess I should be happy to have gotten one within the first 2000 - I was 1979.

I anticipate a call from the CMP any day now, as my RNG is within those that are getting calls at this moment. In the meantime, I offer pics of my Grandfather's Colt 1911.

Picked up my CMP 1911A1 from my dealer yesterday. 1944 Ithaca frame, type 3 RR slide, ANAD 8 80 rebuild stamp. Except for one buggered grip screw it looks pretty good. I'm pleased with what I received.

Picked up my cmp early 1945 Ithaca fame and slide 1911a1 today (2/6) has a new High Standard barrel. OB-84 Marine rebuild etch. MB stamped on both the frame and slide. To say I'm very pleased would be an understatement:

Default M1911/M1911A1 Picture Thread

While waiting for my call I decided to pick this up from a local estate sale. An original 1918 1911.

I paid $385 for this 1919 Colt earlier this week. It appears to be a WW2 RIA rebuild. The slide and frame match, as do the long trigger and flat MSH. The barrel is WW2 Colt.

I didn't take advantage of the gentleman. He knew what he had but deals are still out there if you look hard enough.

Everything together. The current barrel is WW2 era but the original barrel came with it.
