Odd proof marks on the frame and no Colt Verified Proof mark. Not to mention the odd-looking serial number. And that's just a start.

I'm not aware of any references that document replacement parts sold to the government after World War Two. Colt did continue to supply components for awhile, but by the time of Vietnam the...

I'm merely going by the research Charles Clawson did for his book Colt .45 Service Pistols. He mentioned Ithaca having to procure frames directly from Colt as well as surplus WW1 Colt frames from...

That pistol has a 1951 GI contract slide on it. During the Korean War the military needed spare M1911A1 slides so they purchased these "off the shelf" from Colt. That is why they have the same...

Not all arsenal-rebuilt pistols were marked. Also, a lot of small arms depots repaired and rebuilt pistols as well. I haven't seen any sources indicate that Ithaca ever bought frames from Remington...

I only wish we had more new citizens like you and less of the ones who want to start changing this nation to be more like the s***holes they left.

No, my carry gun goes right onto the nightstand and becomes my HD piece at night. I don't have any kids so it's not a problem.

I doubt there were any commercial slides left to use. The opposite is true however, as the first post-war commercial guns used surplus military contract slides (and frames).

Talk about messed up gun laws. I rarely shoot only 100 rounds at a time through any of my guns except my black powder firearms! I wonder how many crimes they've prevented in Spain with all of those...

I think Javichin Colt mentioned recently that Colt currently has no interest in making any more retro-themed guns for awhile. If so it would be a huge bummer, but then again Colt is famous for...

Nice one. I did have an O1911 many years ago but sold it. Mine had too many plum-colored parts on it which annoyed me. Looks to me like you got one of the good ones without the finish mismatch.

I'll be happy if they just put the barrels on straight. The previous incarnation of Marlin couldn't even do that right.

WW1-era slides were not heat treated at all and are comparatively soft. The lugs peen easily and they can crack at the recoil spring tunnel. Also the locking recesses for the barrel bushing and slide...

A gun is useless without ammo for it. Ammo is useless without a gun to fire it in. Sound to me like the two need to stay together one way or the other.

The Marlin 60 and Ruger 10/22 have been fierce rivals for over 60 years. If Ruger was smart they'd keep both going just to give consumers a choice, but if they adopt a consolidation mentality we may...

Well I had to cough up $30 a box for the cheap aluminum-cased .45ACP range ammo I just bought, so that figures. Pre-2020 that stuff was selling for $15 at Walmart.

Thus more reason why SBRs need to be struck from the NFA completely. It's asinine that we can own long guns and really short ones with few restrictions, but not medium-sized ones.
