I would pick it up, give it a good home and love it forever.
If only I could afford a piece of history like that. :frown:
Looks like we spend time in the same shop.

That's true of some of the Arsenal reworks, but not all of them. Some were disassemble and parts replaced as needed, or simply reassembled, some were only Parkerized, some of the M1911s were updated with M1911A1 parts, some were simply refinished (some were not refinished at all) and resembled using their M1911 parts. I had a M1911 (Colt receiver) Rock Island Arsenal (RIA) rework which only had it's side, barrel and stocks replaced with M1911A1 parts, the reminder of the pistol kept it's original M1911 parts.
