As usual, it depends on exactly what s--- hits the fan, where, and what color. In your scenario 330 million people suddenly left to fend for themselves will quickly consume each other, and it probably won't matter what gun you pack if you don't have lots of other fellow people on your side with guns as well.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
