Lucky enough to get hands on this Service Grade 1943 Colt Frame / Rand Slide M1911A1 Today . . .
Very cool, can it be determined what year it was made? How much did that set you back? And...are you going to shoot it?
is certainly a 1943 Colt frame, the slide is type 3 Rem rand so 1943-1945, OG WWII HS barrel, Oddly no Arsenal markings to speak of.
. . . and CMP is only releasing Service grades, like this, at the moment for $1050 plus Tax
Very cool and you sure sure got one in great shape...so, are you going to shoot it?
Oh, I don't know, I have 2 other 43's (the year My grandfather enlisted), I suppose I my toss some lead thru it for Veteran's Day
Beautiful, that thing is in great shape! Been waiting for you to get it in, congrats!
Nice job Karl! You drew a nice one
Kewl love that short trigger.
Shoot it - you can't hurt it.
Nice score, not bad for the price.
Both USGI 1911s and 1911A1s have a limited life span in relationship to current commercial offerings. So you can wear them out, especially arsenal rebuilds
Good base gun for a custom build.
That’s really cool. I would like to own a old war horse like that some day.
That looks great. I’m happy for you! I’d love to have an old girl like that. I hope you do shoot it and post up a range review.
