I close friend of my father passed away back in the early 80's and since they did not have children, his widow gave my father her husband's service pistol which I assume he used in WW1. I had the gun appraised in 1994 and the description in the report is as follows: "Colt Mfg. Co, Inc. Hartford, Ct. Model 1911 Springfield Armory, SN 118516, .45 caliber, 7 shot, Manufactured 1914 - 1915. Total production 30,000, *NRA Modern Grading, Very Good Condition, Circa 1915." I have since had several people look at the gun and I am told the grips are not original and I don't think it has the original magazine but it is nice to have an old 1911 from someone close to my family. Just thought you guys might be interested in seeing the pictures. Additional information anyone can provide on this gun would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
