I was hoping it was a rare find that I would keep all original. Apparently it's just an old beater Colt GI. I already have a buyer that will let me get my money back out of it. It'll be gone today.

I'm not a Colt historian but that pistol is definitely NOT a junker. I would keep it as is but if you decide to have it restored do it properly by sending it to Turnbull Manufacturing in NY state. Doug Turnbull is doing some of the best work in the country on original Colt 1911 including his famous charcoal blue finishes (when applicable).

First off, you have no idea what you are looking at. That "idiot mark", is a stamp from the Colt factory. And the gun is 70 years old. Did you think it should be in pristine condition?

Yeah, Doug is best in the business.

I THINK he was trying to make a joke.
Looks like there is a bit of a scratch on the trigger cut out bevel.

What are your plans for this one? Hard chrome would cover that mark!

For those not quite quick enough to pick up on it, that was an attempt at humor. I followed the thread of the "Idiot mark" question and thought that most here have a holier than thou attitude. Many speculate on others knowledge / experience level and the value of a gun based on a scratch. My thoughts are if you don't like it then don't buy it.

Yep,....caught that, there is a mark as well, so your comment was valid.

I've read this entire thread twice and I can't tell which members are being sarcastic/joking and which ones are just as clueless about guns as the typical GTer.

If you are not being sarcastic/joking, you really need to think about where you ask for gun advice and knowledge. Glock Talk is not the place for it. In fact, the Gen. Glocking and Gen. Firearms forums seem to attract more shooting newbs and BSers than even the rest of it.

IF you are serious about selling it and your buyer falls through LMK. I would rebuild it in my shop and breathe new life into it. I would rather rebuild an old colt than a new SF or kimber.

Joe normally spreads a bit of sarcasm around as well.
That Colt would be one I would have to keep.....scratch or not!

My god those roll marks are gorgeous. The one problem I have with my Colt 1911 is that the factory roll marks are sloppy.

If all parts but grips are original, and the bore is good or better, this pistol would sell for $1600+ as a military collector piece.
I've seen them go for $2K on Gunbroker.

I shoulda kept it I guess. Other things came up that I had more interest in, so I'm OK with it.
