I had been on the hunt for a decent 1911 from the original Springfield US arsenal for quite a while now. Sometimes I got distracted by other things, but I renewed my search and now the hunt is over. I had wanted at least the matching frame/slide, barrel, and one of the original Springfield magazines. This one looks most if not all correct, although I haven't taken it all apart. Not sure if it's from 1915 or 1916. Coolgunsite says 1916, but my small Clawson book indicates 1916 shipments starting at serial 120201. There is a serif P on the side of the other barrel lug. I think the bluing actually looks a little better in these pics than it does in person. It's got some browning, finish looks maybe 50% or so. It also came with a 1918 dated holster in decent shape.
