    Hmmmmmm, #347.

    His description of the pistol sounds too good to be true, but thinking back on the procurement process back then, it prolly ended up in somebody's drawer. :D

    I will let you boys hold it after I win the auction, but you must wear white cotton gloves.

    That seller is quite renowned for his knowledge and expertise on old military 1911's. He is a well known member of THIS forum and makes an appearance from time to time.

    Not sure if that is the most expensive 1911 sale at auction ever, but it is the highest I have ever seen. Thought you all would enjoy seeing a real rarity and what it could fetch.

    @M1911info , thanks for the opportunity to see that one.

    Beyond legit I would say. More like GOSPEL . . .

    If I'm not mistaken, that particular gun is his current avitar . . . . .

    Definitely not me.

    I’m more of a drive-by and chuck out an ridiculous opening bid type of gunbroker user. Every now and then it works :D

    Never too early for levity. There are a lot of new members following that might not be aware . .

    I never thought of Gunbroker as a place where high value collectibles were sold. I guess I was wrong. In a way, this show how far Gunbroker has risen in the community.

    And cool gun.

    You would be amazed at what gets put up for sale there.

    I like posting listings from there from time to time - the GOOD, the BAD, and the UGLY . . .

    It has always been my go to source for research. Bought a number of guns there. My safe queen Colt Series 70 .38 Super was a GunBroker score.

    The one in the back.
