Finally, after an extended stay at Nighthawk Customs, my Colt Government Model manufactured in 1919, is home.
Two years ago, when I first turned 21, this 1919 Colt Gov't was among one of the very first handguns I ever purchased. By the time I got a hold of it, 102 years of service had exchanged...
I am looking to purchase a stainless Colt 1911 Government in .38 Super. This is for a build--so I am open to new or used (potential newer models include "1911 Classic" and "Competition").
Please let me know if you have something you'd be willing to sell.
This is an old handgun that has been passed down in my family from my great-great-grandfather who was a Marine during WW1. I'm not sure if this was a pistol he received in the service, but as far as I have found it was manufactured around that time.
As you can you the serial number is c114277...
Decent deal on a Series 70 Colt Government... if you are looking for a large letter/rollmark for a build, here you go. I have dealt...
Anyone on here have experience with the full size Wiley Clapp offering from Colt? thinking about throwing an ambi safety on one of these and working it into my carry rotation. Any and all advice is welcome (and yes I am very familiar with other manufacturers offerings, I just like THIS pistol!)...
Enjoy the long weekend but mostly - appreciate your freedom !
BTW, she is a 'shooter', not a safe queen :-) Had to rescue her
from someone that kept her caged in a glass box.
...and due to the special holiday weekend, she got a new pair of shoes today !
