Not in person.

I see on the plaque it is a D&L Sports 1911, that I was expecting, and there is a picture on their website.

Dave Lauck (D&L Sports) has done a lot of presentation guns, including presidential guns, over the years.

Congratulations.

However as much as I appreciate R.Lee Ermey, from the serial number this gun seems to be a Colt World War I reproduction, so the modern touches (grip safety, hammer, barrel hood) seem odd to me.

You are correct. I found the same thing with the serial numbers and features but still a nice piece to appreciate. I'm sure it would have fetched some good money in auction as well

Doesn't sound like his son is much into firearms.

That is fricken awesome. The company I work for was in the development stages of a fighting knife for the Gunny. His requirements were that it had a wood handle, could easily cut down a 1" dia. sapling and be able to fight off a tiger in the jungle. Makes me sad that he passed before we could complete the Gunny knife. I was hoping that he would tour our factory and that I would get to meet him.
Do you know where these guns are at auction?

Got a little update for you. I spoke with his son tonight there not up for auction as of yet due to him notarizing the authentication papers coming with each firearm. I will keep you posted on it

Lee Ermey has been one of my gun gurus for years.

I'm glad for you, but I woudln't have ever sold anything like that of my father.
IMHO

If you are going to collect, don't be drawn to an example that is not original, nor correct, focus and shoot for top quality and buy the gun not the story.

I agree 100% with you I wouldn't ether I have had a few talks with him about selling off his firearm's. Me and his son are close so at least it's not too far away if he ever has remorse. I would gladly give it back to him
