    I was looking at Colt King Cobras and this showed up. Is it mislisted and could be a bargain? https://www.gunbroker.com/item/794194371 Model #01918/1976WWI.... Merry Christmas!

    Hello all, I am brand new to this forum and I'm hoping some of you experts out there can shed some light on my latest acquisition. I am the recent recipient of a Colt 1911 that according to my research was manufactured in 1914. It is a priceless family heirloom being that my grandfather...

    Never fired, new in box with everything it came with. The recall that Colt had on these has been taken care of. $1,800 shipped and insured to your FFL. Thanks! Tommy

    Hi All, I'm Tommy, and new to the forum as of today! Just wanted to see what everyone's thoughts are about the current market price for a NIB Colt WWI reissue in the carbonia blue finish. It seems that prices vary greatly. Thank you in advance for your input!

    Up for sale is my Colt WWI 1911 Repro in the much sought after Carbonia Blue finish. Gun is unfired, unmolested and is in absolutely mint condition. I'm pretty confident in stating that the slide has never been racked but I'm not the original owner so I can't be positive. Gun comes 100%...

    1914 and 1915, C serials, original finish. The one on the bottom (1915) has the barrel still packed with grease and appears unfired. A good cleaning will do wonders: as it is on the picture it was simply cleaned with a dry rag, and the stains are caked old grease.

    Hey guys, just trying to match up that old Colt with a period correct magazine. Anyone have an extra lying around?

    This old war horse 1918 Colt was the brainchild of the little know "smith" Wade Wilson. This Colt sports his signature finish, perfected over time and with a LOT of assistance by Mother Nature. When I saw this one, I had to have it. Haven't been out to shoot it yet, but that will be rectified...

    A friend of mine knew I was a connoisseur of 1911's. He asked me yesterday what did I think of old ammo??? My standard line to new shooters, especially rifle shooters, is "Never shoot ammunition that is older than you are!" My friend replied, "Then you will not want this WWI 45 ACP ammo?" Yes I...

    This old 1918 Colt came up for sale recently on a site local to me. He isn't much to look at, kind of like the kid that NOBODY would go to prom with. If it weren't for the fact that I had just bought another nicer 1911, and for the fact that the seller was a couple of hundred miles away from...

    Had an opportunity present itself this week that I couldn't pass up. Unfortunately that means I need to make a few hard decisions and replenish the gat fund so this one must go. I bought this gun from bac1023 back in December. His thread can be found here...

    1911 Colt - WW I - made in 1918 according to the serial number. All metal parts are original. The pistol was re-blued but it was a VERY LONG time ago and it is now showing a beautiful patina again. According to the Colt database/serial number, this is 1918 pistol. Comes with original WW 1...
