I don't really know. I disassembled my CMP1911 when I received it and installed a Wollf Spring kit before I fired it, and it performed as expected, flawlessly. I just wanted to save all the original equipment as received from CMP1911.

If you have other 1911s, what do you gain by shooting the old one?

Which begs the question of why you would pay a premium for an old usgi, if you just intend to treat it like a commercial pistol? And what is this about not increasing value, are you new to milsurp?

Same satisfaction as I get driving my 1958 Chevy Pickup.

Well, yeah, but there are no manufacturers of 58 pickups these days that would give the same experience. Quite unlike 1911s, where there are dozens to choose from being produced today.

No there are not. But I still enjoy driving my old pickup, just like I enjoy shooting an old 1911a1. It puts a smile on my face. I know I'm not long for this world, and I like to smile while I'm here. I'll let my kids worry about what it's worth after I'm gone.

I’m an old retired Army guy. I grew up (military wise) on the 1911s, Jeeps, and some of the other old “milsurp” stuff. I have rust and pitting on the barrel and my grips are worn out. I have been through the rebuild shop a few times (thank you VA) and it shows.

Lord if I do make it to 100-years old like some of these 1911s, someone PLEASE take me out to the range and let me play again before you stick me in the safe (coffin) for the last time to never see the light of the day again! Shoot’em if you got ‘em!

Default From round 1

I received a service grade RR frame and TZ (Israeli) slide. I have shot a lot. It took a while to get used to the heavy trigger and tiny sight, but it is my favorite shooter now.

I have a non CMP 1915 m1911 that seems to be all matching parts. I shoot that pretty sparingly. My CMP 1911 gets shot more often. I would not use it as my regular range toy, but I didn’t buy it to be a safe queen, and it is already pretty well experienced.
