The ones reworked to 7.62x25 by the Chicoms?

Here is my Ithica/Colt National match. Shoots much better than it looks.

This is the man who gave C18222 to me. My dad and Ben Di Clemente lower left photo. Ben was my dad's platoon and foxhole buddy throughout their service in the 4th Division. My dad often carried the pistol which he credits for saving his life on several occasions.

Great story, Thanks for sharing!!

Carved ivory CBI grips believed to be WWII era... 1917 Colt with a later slide. Its an Ogden rebuild. The other is an ATI Commander model. They both shoot great. Originally bought the ATI for carry purposes... but may go with a compact 1911 after all.

Sigman2, I'll give you a close run for the money. Early 1918 produced Gov. Model carried in France by my Great-uncle Arthur, along with his original holster.
Carried by Dad during Korea when called back up and guarded Philadelphia Navy Yard and going to college. (He was in Navy basic training at end of WW2.) He then went Army, and the gun was re-blued by a friendly armorer at Aberdeen Proving Grounds after he graduated college. I put a new rear sight on it in 1980's (still have original) and barrel bushing was replaced with Colt Series ?? collet type. The mag is original also. No scalps for this baby though.
