The original box would be awesome to have! I'd rather have that than a plastic case.

While I appreciate the nice tan case that came with my 1911, I too would have preferred the cardboard box.

The tan faux Pelican cases are HUGE!

I also would liked to have one of the USGI cardboard cases.

This is a reproduction of the old boxes and is reasonably priced. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1014534289

OK, that's fine but as my Dad often told me "I don't think you are going to get exactly what you want".

There are other reproduction boxes for sale that are marked and they will take a grease pencil and mark what ever serial you want on the box.

As a collector and sometime shooter - I don't want a repro box - I would love to buy the box mine came in and if that is too hard, I'd purchase an original box - I would imagine it was considered but then the shipping boxes got bigger and bigger and they decided against it, that and many of them did not come with a box from the military

Still the wrong box, right?

Just offering suggestions...….
If you want to call that the wrong box, go ahead.

But then some of these have no box at all...……….
How do you or anybody know if your pistol came in a separate box as opposed to all those sent in a large wooden crate surrounded by bubble wrap...…?

Let me guess, you'd want the wooden crate?

I mean just asking...…….

Again:
