Most .45's were not shot to any degree, one or twice per year and then only a couple of hundred rounds. A rebuilt pistol is condition code A, rebuilt to as close to new as possible. Unless you see something wrong the pistol will be shooting after your are on the back side of the grass.

M1911A1 pistols have local heat treating of the slide and a recoil plug on the breechface.

Model of 1911 pistols do not. Heat treating of Models of 1911 is not on a par with the heat treating of M1911A1s. Breechfaces can and do peen. Slide stop notches can and do get deformed. The improvements were made in the mid 1920s.

Model of 1911 slides are more susceptible to premature wear. Collectors sometimes call these pistols 'soft slide' pistols. These are not my rules. Please read up on these differences if you plan to get a Model of 1911.
