    Hmm...interested to see this thing. If its a "Replica" it might make a good movie prop - or put it in a display case on your wall if you'd like. If its a look alike modern reproduction of what the military 1911s looked like in WWII, I'd dress up like a Doughboy and go storm some beaches. (Ok, maybe I wouldn't...but its a nice image). JMO

    I was in Gander Mtn yesterday and saw what appears to be this exact gun. Big sign, "Colt WWII 1911 replica". First time I've seen that particular gun, there. They want $1100 for it!

    If it's actually a Colt, you got a good deal for $400, but I've heard of copies being made in China. I have not seen one though, but a good friend swears he did in Missouri a few months ago.

    Johnny, that is a M1911 WWI reproduction (Model O1911), not the earlier WWII (O1911A1). You got one hell of a deal! Colt made somewhere over 5000 units of that pistol. They have changed from the carbonia blue that yours has to bluing them in house and re-designating them the Model O1918. You have a great pistol there, congratulations.

    Do they have any more at that price, I'd love to have another.

    A replica in a display case? Why?

    I'd shoot it and enjoy it.

    It's a recent production Colt. It's not going to generate great collector value like the original models. I say shoot the hell out of it and enjoy. That's what it is for.
