    Some idiot colored in the roll marks, but that can be removed. Someone that knows their Colt 1911 history, tell me if I found a winner or a junker. All serial numbers match up too. :cool:

    Sweet,.......would be a HELL of a base for a build! :cool:
     

  3. $950? Sounds like a nice price for an Original GI A1 with matching numbers... I wish i lived closer to the middle of america :(

    It's a 1943 serial #.
     
  5. Nice find! To bad no one on here would want it though with that mark on it.:supergrin:
     
  6. I'd say the only ding" against it is that the grips have been replaced.

    Other than that, it looks like a good find to me.

    As far as the price goes, it seems like a lot of money, but heck a good condition M-1 carbine will set you back approx. $750.00 now days.

    Ahhhh, for the days I used to buy those things for $75.00 with ammo thrown in as a "deal sweetener".

    I thought that M1911s of said vintages already sported the brown plastic grips?
     
  16. Um, that would be a hell of a base for a sweet build.

    Another vote to keep it as is. I'd replace the recoil spring ans shoot it alot though.

    They did, but grips are easily changed.
     
  19. They did, but if Joe is going to get some work done to it, it won't matter anyway.
     
  20. That would be a great one to send to Ted and Jason, have it come back looking like this. :faint:
