I'd like to see a more focused picture of the trigger guard area. I haven't seen dates for the SA rebuilds. Looks to me more like Anniston X'd out their own date and put in 5/85. This could have...

Two beauts, DSK!

Pie; the roll marks are one thing, but have you delved into the many different ponies used over the years? That is maddening. I always thought 'the pony is the pony' but even with...

I don't think there were any other inspectors' initials on rebuilds. Most all of them either have no marks or just the facility initials. Some arsenals also dated the rebuilds.

It may be Manganese Phosphate which is darker than Zinc Phosphate (Parkerizing). That is the correct barrel marking. I think you got the pistol at a great price. I like the Colt medallion grips on...

With hand guns outside I usually use just the electronic muffs but with long guns I add foam plugs. I don't usually go to indoor ranges but in the past I have used both the muffs and plugs inside,...

I would shoot target loads only and with that fully-hardened slide, you might have a long-term target pistol there. The pistol looks like they took a brand new one and did the work to it. What is on...

May, 1918?, worn original finish, initials carved in grips but you have the provenance for it. I guess $2500 to somebody looking for a gun with a true story.

The grips look serviceable to me and they could have been put on the pistol after the Parkerizing. I think the .38 is more likely to have been on combat aircraft but who knows? Maybe both were. It...

I should have mentioned that the Colt slide stops and other parts were on early pistols as RR was getting geared up.

Moreover, the barrel is a WWII-era replacement. The M1911 probably was re-issued for WWII. Put up some pictures of it and we might be able to tell a few things about it.
