I bought this in an estate sale a few years back. I bought it from the son of a man who had had it for over 50 years. Made in 1918.

I collect USGI longarms, but never really thought about a good 1911. After years, finally got my first, which I am proud to show off.

Here is a Colt 1911a1 that shipped to the Springfield Armory in a shipment of 1000 guns on June 4th 1945. It has the finish referred to as Parko-Lubrite. The ramp on the frame is correctly “not machined” as well. It appears to have never been used in service and I wish it could talk. The top lip of the magazine floor plate is marked with an "S", and the bottom of the floor plate it is marked "C-S".

Bullet Ramp

It would be characteristically wrong to say that the bullet ramp had not been machined into the frame, or otherwise how would it have been achieved. The phosphate finish was not polished from the bullet ramp of late Colt receivers, but they had been machined.
From a WWII instructional sheet:

"Polish cartridge run-way in receiver. This is done with a high speed polishing jack, 3500 RPM, and split rod with Emery paper (80 grit) wrapped around."

Good catch and I should have worded it differently. I guess I should have said "the ramp on the frame is correctly not polished after the finish was applied". Certainly the ramp was machined into the frame.

Better??

Been in the family since the year it was made, passed down from father, to son, to me. Carried as a duty weapon by 3 generations spanning the 20th century.

A firing pin stop broke one day during a marathon range session in the early 90s, totally unnoticed until disassembled for cleaning that night. It never even stuttered and fired till all the range ammo was gone. Fixed, the old warhorse was retired and replaced by another 1911 of less distinguished (i.e., unknown) past ownership. These days I have 5 of them, all Colts, four pre-1920, and one series 80 fitted with steel parts from a 1911.

Uploaded images cannot exceed 100kb in size. Either edit the picture in Photoshop to reduce the file size, or else go with an image hosting website and post a link to the picture.

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.

1914 Springfield Armory




She's a little dusty from being in her case.... I've recently seen two sites that listed SA 1911 GI for about $3k each. Is this right?

USGI prices are just like housing prices on the west coast. Thanks to supply and demand the market has literally gone insane.

Go to www.tinypic.com . Click on Choose File, and this will take you to the picture files on your computer. Choose the picture from your files, and it should show up out beside Choose File. Then click on Upload Image. This will give you a URL Link which you will need to copy to your browser. Come back to the forum and click on the picture image box (yellow with the mountains in the bottom). This will bring up a window to paste the URL to, but first remove the http:// already in the window before you past the link. This should load the image to your post. At the end of your text, skip down at least one line before posting the link. Tinypic will allow up to 250 kb pictures, but it is best to keep them in the 150 kb range. If your pictures are too large, Tinypic will resize the to 250 kb. Preview your post before submitting just in case you missed something.

It appears that you are trying to post the link where the text goes. If you are trying to do that, don't remove the http://. If you will open the photo window, remove the http:// already there, then post the URL from tinypic (with the http:// left on), your picture should post. If you post the link under the text, the photo will not open when you open your post.
