Well, this is a pretty cool gun, but I'm finding out that caring for a baby is more expensive than I imagined, so I'm putting off this 9mm 1911 custom project for another day.
Included are 3 aftermarket Mec-Gar mags which function well as well as the factory Colt mag. I will throw in about 7 more mag bumpers from Brownell's that I purchased. New mags at Brownell's are about $30 a piece. I put a replacement Wolff 7# spring in the recoil assembly and with the new mags, it functions very well. Notice the pachmayr wrap around grip and backstrap, too.
The pictures explain everything on this gun, but if there is more I can answer, give me an IM or e-mail. I am NOT a 1911 expert, so be aware I may not be able to answer all the questions fielded. This is a perfect gun for a custom project and in great shape. I assume all the parts are Colt original except for maybe the backstrap, grip safety and ambi safety.
Note the ser. # prefix is 70
I will consider trades for an unmodified Colt 1911 .45 Gov't model or other guns or firearm related items or price is $595 shipped to your FFL including mags and additional mag bumpers. Please make me a trade offer on IM or E-mail.
