I love old war photos, especially of period German uniforms. But that pistol in the belt looks like a Mauser 1914.

I am trying to figure that one out.
I can see a grip safety but some other details do not look quite right?

The Mauser 1914 had one piece grips that covered the back of the grip frame, and that one appears to have slab grips. Looks too small for a 1911 compared to the other gear.

Vintage WW1-era training photo. Some American Doughboys showing the French how it's done.

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.
