Hi I'm new to the forum and by reading over the posts here it seems to be an awesome forum, I was just given through tthe family a 1918,1911 Colt 45, with it came the Colt 22 conversion kit. Overall the gun is in good shape for its age, the finish isn't to beat up and seems to have been well cared for. It's been my Grandfathers since 1946, and he said he only shot one 45 round, and maybe a dozen 22 rounds, I'm not sure how much it was fired before that but not to much since 1946. I think its probably lost some of its collectors worth since the original owner had his name engraved on the slide so I would like to make this gun a shooter. Is that possible considering it's age and if so what parts should be replaced to bring it back to the times.
