Got a new camera, so I wanted to share.
Here is my well-worn Colt 1911 made in 1918.
Crap,....... That's sweet!
If that gun could talk, I'm sure it could tell quite a few stories!
Btw, I've told the story about this Colt in a couple other threads.
Very nice my friend
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.
That's a good way to look at it.
Honorable scars of battle.
I bet you can still protect your life with that gorgeous piece. Unlike
a Mimber or Springfield.
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.
My bad for not holding down the Caps key.
