Hi Folks, I understand that 1911s which letter to the AEF are common, but any I've ever owned were delivered to the Springfield Armory. In any case, this one came back lettered to the army in France, and I'm very pleased. This gun came right out of the woodwork, holster and all, and has the amount of "wabi" I like on mil-guns. Thought I'd post a couple of snaps for you guys. Thanks for looking! . . . .
