I think most might not know or care. I've found that most "people" prefer a garand with a new walnut stock because it looks pretty over one with USGI wood.
Go figure...

I don't think he bought a rack grade just to refinish it. That would not be economical.

How many 1911s are coming out of the CMP refinished? 90%?
I suppose all those have been destroyed too.

If he had a WWI or II rack grade with all correct parts and +/-50% original finish remaining and reparked it then you would destroy a piece of history.

I agree,,,itís yours do what makes you happy with your property.

I am getting one of the M1911ís because of what it is and where it might have been. Regardless of the grade or price it is a M1911 from the Military. To me it is a historical piece that I donít see me ever selling. I have been wanting one for about 40 years and now it is almost time.

To me it will be priceless!!!
