    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? :)

    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.

    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

    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.
