The good news is that if you end up deciding to get rid of them they'll go for a pretty decent price on Gunbroker. A lot of people are clamoring for the older Series 70 repros with the polished...

It has been reblued and a short M1911A1 trigger added. Also the rear sight notch was cut into a deep V-shape (originally it was a shallow "U").

So tell us, what is the history behind the pistol?...

Possession of an AR-15 is one thing. The knowledge of how to use it combined with the understanding that it's only part of the big picture is what's important. I once had a co-worker who told me he...

There was a time when collectors were laughing at people buying Lend-Lease 1911s with their British proof marks all over them. Now those guns are going for nearly as much as an unmarked example. The...

The markings are pretty well buffed off. I would estimate its value at around $500-$600. Remember that the cost of de-plating and refinishing will likely be just as much, and the value afterwards...

Honestly, I don't find the weight difference to be enough to go with an alloy frame. I have a steel-framed Combat Commander, and by using a plastic trigger and MSH and rubber grips I've got it down...

I agree, the CMP guns may be mixmasters but at least they're legitimate. Problem is, once they're out in the wild you can no longer be sure they haven't been messed with further.

If we lose the White House and Senate this year it won't matter which state you live in. We'll ALL be screwed.

Wyoming has a population of only around 700,000. All it would take is for Amazon to build a new warehouse there and a million liberals would flood the state looking to work there.

Blowback-operated handguns always have a much harsher recoil than locked-breech designs. I briefly owned a Bersa Thunder that stung the palm of my hand whenever I fired it, and that was only a .380!

Do a search on Gunbroker for "1960" and you'll be surprised what pops up. Colt didn't make many Government Models that year, only 2100 with SN# 285800C-287999C, so that's why you probably haven't...

The serial number indicates 1942 production. Unfortunately the modifications along with the overall condition have relegated this to simply being an interesting shooter.

You sound like one of the guys tasked to maintain Kermit Week's massive vintage aircraft collection. Proud to be able to do it, but probably also jealous as hell!

The only thing I dislike about the newer alloy Colt trigger is that it's too long. It's actually longer than the original "long" trigger used on the WW1-era M1911. Had they not done that I wouldn't...
