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!

Default My CMP 1911

Novice here, but knew I wanted one of these. Rack grade, all I was offered. From what I can tell, Colt frame circa 1918, US&S slide, not sure about the other markings. Any additional info would be appreciated.

Cheers
