That is so awesome!!!

What a great 1911 to own; How’s that old war horses shoot?
It shoots great, given the Gov't sights. I replaced all the springs, including the extractor. A also replaced the firing pin, and the firing pin stop. The original parts are still good, and are saved in a zip lock bag. The only thing I will shoot in it is reduced power reloads. I only shoot it on occasion.

Do you know any of the gun’s history?
Yes, it was owned by my great uncle who served in the Navy as 1st Class Master at Arms in WWI, the Great War. The gun was made after August of 1913. It is 100% original and in V good condition. He only shot it once a year. After his passing, it has never been shot again until I gained possession.

Wow! How much did you pay for that distressed finish?! 😂😂

Yeah, I have my grandfather’s 1943 and I don’t shoot it much at all. Might mount it in a shadow box with his Bronze Star and just leave it hanging on the wall.
I should probably case my 1911, too. I would hate for anything to happen to it. Like I have said, I only shoot it occasionally, and with mild reloads. It's been almost a year since I shot it last.
