    I guess I was asleep when looking at AA refurbish?
    That 1911A1 slide is not off another gun, but is one manufactured specifically for and intended use only, as a replacement part.

    I was going to say around the transition, but thought I remembered seeing the DD's till the mid 30's for some reason.
    I appologize for giving wrong info as I have no 1911 history book to refer to, and only go from what info I have gathered in the last few years of being a 1911 junky.

    Believe me, it ain't all from books, some of it is from being old. Also, I have a pre-war 1940 USGI, which still had the fully checkered walnut stocks, before the Coltrock plastic stocks were introduced.

    but thought I remembered seeing the DD's till the mid 30's for some reason.
    You very well may have, I'm sure there was some over lap, Colt never threw anything away.

    No need to apologize Bruce, I learn something new everyday about the 1911 myself, part of the fun.

    OD whats your take on this Commercial Colt? It is like brand new, all original, with display case. I have handled it sever times, but they want $2400 for it, I would buy it just to have as the early Commercials in this shape are worth $$.

    They have this one there as well, but its quite rough, and they want $1200 for it.

    C97040 is pretty, if it is all original & correct, I would want them to supply a Colt letter for that kinda money. The price isn't out of line for what I've seen on the 'net.

    C87319 wouldn't be a bad candidate for restoration (true restoration and not a refinish) and if you could get the cost down some and can abide by that sort of thing. Offer them a Grand and leave it original.

    What do you mean by true restoration? I went as high as $650 on it and they wouldn't go below a G.

    I could get the mint one for $2200, but as you said I told them to call colt and get a shipment letter. They are working on it.

    By "true restoration" Bruce, I mean by someone who specializes in that sort of thing. They know what color blue to used, like oven-bluing in a coal-fired furnace or the later finishes that were done in a gas-fired furnace. They know the differences between "oil finish," "fine finish," "dull finish" "brushed finished" etc.

    They know the direction in which the guns were polished at the factory, what types of buffing wheels were used, they don't over buff and remove letting, they can re-stamp rollmarkings, inspector stamps and in the case of Bill Adair, engrave those stamps and markings by hand.

    There is a huge difference between a "restoration" and a "refinish" BUT, true collectors will call you a heretic.
