For me it depend on originality and condition of the pistol. If it were really nice but just a wrong barrel, I guess I would consider going after it. If its been re-blued, a 1913 probably is not...

Where's the pony?
After some thought and some looking around, it seems the different types of numerals in the serial numbers is the result of peculiarities in the marking process, where a different...

The original subject pistol might be a restoration but it also shows many signs of a long period of time in its current state, including a little rust here and there, old oxidized oil and...

Impossible to re-roll mark without first sanding the original off - no way the die will index properly with every character. However, there is a way to 'refresh' the markings, and that is to hand...

Nice M1911 rebuild. Seems to be as-issued after the rebuild with typical light wear.

Like many do today, I originally deemed the 1911 outdated and primitive. Then a co-worker let me shoot his MKIV S'70 that had been re-worked by the late Fred Schmidt. After that I started to get real...

Looks to me like the serial number was at least partially obliterated and re-stamped. Is there a 'rampant colt' at the rear of the slide? If so, and considering the shape of the 'ball cuts' at the...

Yeah, humidity is bad over here too. Never take for granted that they're OK - clean every gun at least every six months and always leave a film of lubricant on every surface of every metal part.

Looks righteous to me so I bid $1100! :) That'll probably be about 10% of what it goes for.

corpsman5; I don't think I would shoot that one either - its really nice and from what I can see of the top of the barrel, its barely scratched, so avoid racking the slide too. You might want to get...

Sounds like you got a good one in the mechanical sense. The fact that you like it is all that matters. I wouldn't have posted the value but you asked several times. Anyway, when you get an M1911 like...

Yes, you overpaid. It probably is worth $850 to those who know their U.S. pistols but if you put it on Gunbroker you could possibly get your $1300 back, so the question is moot.

I think the SN is okay - what don't you like about it? The heavy '1' is typical, if that is throwing you.

You're right - I didn't blow up the best picture of the grip frame, and it shows blue in the pitting. So, I guess it is a re-blue, but they sure took it easy.

That frame is bugging me. It's really too crisp to have been sandblasted, Parkerized, then later polished and blued. It is possible that a frame with great original finish 'passed-thru' AA with the...

Yep, you can easily see the marks from the grinding to remove the serial number. The number used to replace it has no connection to any U.S. pistol.

Of course you don't know who may have done what to the rear sight before you got it. Typically you have use heat to get those sights out when replacing.

C-L on the base is Little for Colt. The one with the Colt 45 auto in 'squashed' font looks to have a pinned base so it was made pre-war for a Government Model and could have been issued with a...
