I've Come to the DARK SI....OLD Side
Out of all the pistols I've owned in my life. Possible over 60. I have never Owned a 1911 .45ACP. I've had a few Colt 10mm's but never a .45. Well I finally got rid of my 10mm Smith 610 that a few of you have maybe seen plagueing this board.
I traded for a orginal COLT 1918. Guns in fairly good condition.
Stamped US Goverment Property. Model of 1911 US ARMY.
Maybe a new Park Bath to really make it nice. But it adds a little character to the collection. Heck I may even carry this gun.
Do not refinish it or have it reParked.
Don't refinish it.
Don't do anything to it unless you never intend to sell it.
You will destroy its collector dollar value if you refinish it.
Also...if it sports original double diamond Walnut grips they are worth about $200.00 just for those grips alone.
