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...

I grow weary of explaining it and begging people to vote, but it seems that the republican candidates are never perfect enough to deserve the vote. So they stay home. We could easily defeat them and...

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.

Doggone; my RR is almost that nice and has none of the damage - I should put it on there! I'd be glad to get $2700 for it. :)

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...

I had no more trouble with ejecting so I guess that was a 'break-in' thing. I did find that it really likes the PRVI 69gr OTM. The Colt with 1:9 barrel likes it too, so I guess I'm going to be...

Quality was spotty in those years. Everything else on my pistol is top notch, and I guess the rollmark is why I was able to get it so cheap - that, plus the auction page was terrible - little info...

I understand that they make the BRN-180 uppers for Brownell's. That's quite a piece of work too.
