    Got a new camera, so I wanted to share. :)

    Here is my well-worn Colt 1911 made in 1918.

    Wow!!:wow:

    If that gun could talk, I'm sure it could tell quite a few stories!

    Thanks!!

    Btw, I've told the story about this Colt in a couple other threads.

    Beautiful!

    When I first looked at the title for this thread I thought it was going to be about some Japanese guy!

    I also have the original box of ammo from WWII. Hopefully, when I take some pics, I can find the ammo, too. :)

    It don't look particularly worn to me, just has a nice patina.

    I bet you can still protect your life with that gorgeous piece. Unlike
    a Mimber or Springfield. :cool:

    That's the way I look at it, too.

    It still shoots really well with ball ammo. Every once in a while I take her out and run some ammo through. I made sure to install a Wilson Combat shock buffer to protect the frame from cracking. The steel is a little softer than new guns and the steel hardening processes were a little lax during wartime demand.

    Good idea. I wouldn't shoot it that much either.

    I'm more likely to wear it out by fondling it every day. ;)
