Have no idea of value of that gun. My personal opinion is, since it was inherited, it's a family gun & as such should stay in your family.

I think they went for north of $2000. That's a beautiful gun!

Once again, check Gun Broker closed postings. One there posted several times with no sale, started at $1100.
Several others asking 1700 to over 2000 with no bids.

What mickeyd said: The market has spoken.

These auction results, to me, suggest that the commemorative aspect of the gun does not increase it's value. Heck , an unfired normal one might do better than $1100.

So............. HOORAY!! this means that the brakes are off! You can shoot & enjoy the gun all you want without any financial downside.

Go crazy, Man. Have some fun with it!

Not really my cup of tea, but it is attractive. No idea of the value, put it on the wall to admire.

That's the problem with these types of guns. They are hardly ever worth what was paid for them, and the targeted buying audience is pretty tiny. Plus it's pretty much a new gun, what with it commemorating the centennial of the M1911.

The biggest problem with commemoratives is that, between Colt and the smaller companies who commissioned them, far too many have been made over the years. Winchester was just as bad about this, cranking them out faster than they did normal-production guns for a time. Unless the actual person or event being commemorated is of particular significance to someone the desirability is going to be fairly low, which affects the price.

By the way I deleted the other two identical threads that were started on this pistol. Please do not cross-post across multiple sub-forums as it is against forum rules.

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.

At least the grip screws are clocked properly.

Try looking here: https://www.gunbroker.com/All/search...13&PageSize=48

However, keep in mind that the asking price is not always the selling price.
Another however, even if you hate guns, please don't sell it.
