Hello. I had an opportunity to purchase a 1968 from a gentleman whose grandfather in law just passed. This would be the oldest 1911 I own. I assured the gentleman this would be respected and well cares for. Condition upon receipt was great in my opinion. Trigger is a bit gritty but I think I’ll keep it as is. Plastic Colt grips shrunk and by the looks of one of the grip screws someone at one point had a hard time. Sure enough, the bushing came out and the frame hole is stripped. Lots of dried oil upon disassembly. My FFL was afraid to rack it since it was stuck. Frame and slide fit are great. No rattle. Thumb safety has that slight over travel when taking off safety. Lots of gum removed. This thing is beautiful in my eyes. Looking to buy a bushing repair kit and get it going. Hoping that it is not difficult. If anyone has any thoughts or opinions, let me know.
