Got a new camera, so I wanted to share. :)

Here is my well-worn Colt 1911 made in 1918.

Wow!!:wow:

If that gun could talk, I'm sure it could tell quite a few stories!

When I first looked at the title for this thread I thought it was going to be about some Japanese guy!

I also have the original box of ammo from WWII. Hopefully, when I take some pics, I can find the ammo, too. :)

It don't look particularly worn to me, just has a nice patina.

I bet you can still protect your life with that gorgeous piece. Unlike
a Mimber or Springfield. :cool:

It still shoots really well with ball ammo. Every once in a while I take her out and run some ammo through. I made sure to install a Wilson Combat shock buffer to protect the frame from cracking. The steel is a little softer than new guns and the steel hardening processes were a little lax during wartime demand.

Good idea. I wouldn't shoot it that much either.

I'm more likely to wear it out by fondling it every day. ;)

Very nice. I just got one made in 1914 but still haven't shot it yet. Maybe next week.

I'd love to see a pic or two of it. Love those USGI's.

1918 seems to be a VERY common year of birth for USGI 1911's, anyone know what's up with that??

My guess would be WWI?

Mine, too. I think they really amped up production so that we could enter the theater of war.
