Most of my M1911s. All Colt except for the Remington-UMC in the lower right corner. Upper right corner is a rebuild from Augusta Arsenal.

I am coming to this pretty late, but it took me this long to get some decent pictures. I have my wife to thank for letting me use her iPad.

RNG is 8005. I really thought I was out of the running, but got the call early in August and picked up the pistol from my FFL on August 5.

Gun is Service Grade, Model 1911, Colt frame and slide. I am really happy that the parked finish matches on both. Serial number shows date of manufacture to be 1918, and it apparently was shipped to the Navy.

Very happy about that also, as my Dad served aboard a destroyer escort in WWII, my brother on a destroyer and then a cruiser on the gunline off the coast of Vietnam, and I also served aboard an LST.

Thanks to the great folks at CMP!

Any comments and observations are very welcome. The more I can learn about this Piece of History, the better!

Looks like a fine 1911 to me.

I think it should have a rear horse slide. It's a 1918 slide.

Thanks Lead Poison. I'm sure your right about the slide. I was most interested what the D 64 Stamping on the slide represented? History, you know? Being that the pistol is a SA rebuild, I'm just glad it was mated to the 1918 Colt slide. Being 9002 in the draw, I couldn"t be more pleased. The CMP is doing a great job. Not just because I got a nice 1911. A beat up "War Horse" could have had more history and represented 1911's in a harder life. All these CMP 1911's have a heritage that does not come in a new 1911. This 1911 is retired now. Oh, i'm sure it will "Bark" again with friends. On trip to the range with a younger crowd. Just to show, the old 1911 has what it takes!
