Ok, so I got a screaming deal on an Argentine Colt 1911. I know just a little about these guns. The thing that is confusing is the bottom of the trigger gaurd is stamped "CIA St Albany VT". Now, I am pretty sure St Albany VT is Century Arms, but CIA? Wouldnt it be CAI? Just curious about the one marking I dont understand.

So now I know that I might as well have stole this pistol, but I still dont know about the CIA stamp on the bottom. Great sight by the way.

CIA = Century International Arms, just an importer mark on bottom of TG.

Kinda what I thought, but thought it was Century Arms Inc. or something. IE: CAI. Cool, at least now I know. Thanks.
