Got a new camera, so I wanted to share.

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

Wow!!

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

Beautiful!

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.

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

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.
