    Correct, but I'd still drop $200 bucks on it so fast your head would spin!!

    So would I, unfortunately he isn't budging. Maybe I'll head up there with a baseball bat for some convincing.

    Baseball bat vs 45. Me thinks you'll lose, even if it is an old 45

    inform your uncle that he got royally screwed on the deal, and give him two crisp one hundred dollar bills and insist that you, personally, take the gun back to the original seller and make things right! After all, it's the least a good nephew can do.

    JD has hit most of them.
    The slide is a post 1918, looks like an M1911A1 slide (no rollmarkings on the right side).
    Mainspring housing, trigger and grip safety are off a post-1924 pistol (M1911A1).
    The stocks do appear to be plastic, and a M1911 would have had double diamond walnut stocks.
    Is the pistol Parkerized or blue? If Parkerized, it maybe an armory rework, better pictures might tell.
    If it's blue, it's mostly likely a mixmaster built from parts.

    I am cuban11182's father. I have the 1911 at my house right now. I am cleaning it for my brother, he doesn't even know how to take it apart. It is not original, I took it to my neighbors. He said that it looks like an arsenal job, done with a number of parts. It is very tight, doesn't even rattle when you shake it. I know the ones we had in the Army rattled a lot. I shot it at about 15yds. at a piece of firewood, it was about an inch. It has not had a lot of rounds through it since the rebuild. I tried to give him more money for it, but he isn't that dumb. He is really lucky finding deals like that. He said the guy also has an old H&R 38 spl. I am trying to buy that for $100.
