the frist things that jump out at me are the trigger, mainspring housing , and grip safety . The photo is not big enough to see if proper slidestop , safety , or hammer are there oh and also arnt the grip panels wrong for a 1911 shouldnt they be plastic ? i really cant remember offhand

bruce that pixilated out for me , but if i had to say i would say at least the slide stop is wrong it looks stirated not checkered , the general shape of the safety looks right tho

original magazine had a lanyard loop(in adition to the loop on the mainspring housing),The 1911 had a long trigger the gun in picture has a short trigger. the grip safety,mainspring housing and hammer are from 1911a1

I was workin' Bruce :frown:

Let's see, what's wrong...
as stated MSH, trigger, (grip safety is correct "edit" nope, it does look like an A1)

slide (it is USGI) is post 1938
hammer is post 1939
United States Property and inspectors stamp is missing from left side of frame
Slide stop is a post 1924 and it's probably a Commercial model (Colt didn't use serrated on the M1911s, they used knurled thru 1945 with intermittent production of serrated slide stops beginning in Oct. of '44)
the finish

Not on a 1919, they stopped that around 1915 or so.
The last Colt issued with lanyard loop mags was #125566, last M1911 of 1915.

Hmm, this is kinda fun. :wink:
