    Last time I was at this shop they had three in stock and I bought two of them they might still have the other one you would just have to call them I believe they will do a transfer.

    I would not recommend anyone to buy one off the internet. Handle and thoroughly inspect it, two or three times before you buy it. I've had three of 'em. Two were unrepairable junk that I never even fired. Went back and forth to Colt, finally I sold 'em at a loss just to clear my mind of 'em.

    I can't speak for the quality of it, but when I was looking for such gun, the next closest thing as far as looks is the Auto Ordnance, several hundred $ less too, but I got the 01918 colt at $880. I have only had it out once & fired maybe 50 rounds and had no problems.

    The AO is based off the 1911A1, not the early 1911.

    Cimarron's new model is based off the 1918.

    Yeah, USFA probably makes the best reproductions around.

    I'm getting one next year. :)

    Having said that, it isn't a WWI reproduction, its a hybrid.

    Yeah, they aren't cheap.

    I'm thinking about $1700 at my shop. That is a lot for a GI replica, but I like the rare stuff. USFA doesn't build many.

    I started this thread on them a few days ago.

    I just checked out the USFA. Looks nice. The grips and grip safety could be replaced to make it look right.

    I look at it like this: You could buy a Colt with backwards slide serrations, hammer hitting the slide, slide flats uneven, spring plug hole off center, etc, or...

    Pay more money for a well built gun worth keeping and relace the grips and grip safety. (It looks like a parts gun from 1910-1945)
