Hey all. I think that the WWI and WWII repro 1911’s that Colt put out are something of the most beautiful Factory 1911’s that Colt has put out in a very long time. When they were released I lived in an area that would only rarely get one for the dealers to display. I tried to deal My NIB Colt NRM on one at my local favorite shop, but he wouldn’t even discuss it. I never ended up getting one. Now I wish I had found a way to. Anyway, I am curious if anyone has used theirs as a base for a custom build. If you did, how about telling about it and why you chose that Colt to do your piece. Even better if you can post some Glamour Shots of your beauty. Did you refinish it in the same deep blue that it came with, as close as you could, or did you go with another finish? What’s your thoughts on these fine looking Colt’s as a base for a custom build?? Thank you all.
