Many many years ago when my grandfather was alive, he always carried a small .22 1911. From what I remember, he had it custom made. I can't find any markings or numbers on the pistol, it is missing several parts though. My father told me my grandfather had a problem with it and tried to fix it on his own. Well, grandpa was no gunsmith....that's for sure. The pistol looks to be gold plated. I believe it's a .22lr because I have one magazine and the round fits in there nice and snug, as well as when I place a shell in the chamber. I want to get it restored to how I remember my grandfather when he had it....gold with ivory (or MOP) grips. Please see pics below... If anyone knows who can do this work at a decent price...I'd really appreciate it. Thanks! DH Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
