    I am looking for a UMC/Remington or Colt WW1 reproduction 1911. A gently used one will be fine as I plan to shoot it. Let me know what you have.
    Thanks

    A Tier III Colt just ended on GB, $1000, keep an eye on there too, I have a UMC and a Colt Black Army repro's here but not really looking to sell either at this time

    I was not near my computer when that auction ended. I would rather have the one that doesn't have the "2011" marking. Karl, in your opinion which do you think is best the UMC or the Colt? I'm leaning more towards the UMC for the fact it was done by Turnbull. thanks for reply.

    Rex,

    The finish and machining, and true to original spec of the Turnbull/UMC is superior to Colt's attempt, and that is saying a lot as the Colt is a nice gun also

    Yep, even the polishing on the frame is more correct on the UMC the way it changes direction below the mag release button. Turnbull is very good for production accuracy in anything he touches. I've handled some of his Winchester rifles.
