Pistols

The first photo is of a Remington Rand with a post WWII slide.
The second photo is another Remington Rand with a 1911 slide.
The third photo is a Colt with an Ithaca slide. This pistol looks like it was taken to a wire buffing wheel to remove rust.

JP,

Thank you for the information.

That these are cobbled to some degree, <personal chuckle> doesn't really surprise me.

The one with the Ithaca slide would certainly be nicer, had it not been nickel plated. At this point though, I wonder if it's worth having it re-done, re-parkerized or just leave it alone. What do you think?

So aside from the little history of the picece, I gather it's probably not worth alot. Would that be correct in your estimaion?

It would probably be best to get RR slides for the other two also. Right? Is that a "doable" thing? Or are they scarce as hens-teeth these days?

Hi fellas,

I picked this Ithaca up on Friday. This will be used as a daily carry cause I can't get a 2nd gun (not allowed according to laws). What do you guys think. It looks to be in excellent condition but I haven't fired it yet.

1917 production year. Bought it in 2001 from a friend for a song; with thanks to his girlfriend's Champaign taste on his beer money. My dad had the ivory grips tucked away in a desk drawer for the past 20 years or so.

Heres my 1943 double marked Ithaca. I believe it to be all original. Received it from my grandfather after he passed on.




1918-19 Colt

Ok, Here's my latest. I paid "dearly" for this set up, but it was worth it.
Its a US&S purchased from the original owners son. Its a 1918 dated mag pouch & Holster with original mags. I have a letter from the son giving information on his father and his initials are written inside the holster.
He was a Navy Seabee, paymaster (which is why he had the pistol) stationed somewhere in the pacific theater during WWII.
