I bought my first 1911 and its a collector piece so probably very little shooting but I've got a question about it's origionality. The serial is 201xxx and I can't find an acceptance stamp but it does say "property united states" on left side. The slide has "model of 1911 us army" and the colt pony in a circle. About 65% finish that is shiney blue and a half blued magazine. Have not looked at the guts yet and can post a pic or pics tomarrow. The wear is even on the parts so any rebuild had to take place many years ago. The barrel has Springfield markings but I don't know the year. Someone said the slide was from 1912, seems right but how did it get on a later year frame???

Will answer any questions and thanks for looking. Plus any links or comments would be great, Joe." border=0>

The acceptance mark is only a faint almost non-existant hold it in the light just right half circle, if that. No arsenal markings at all but was obviously rebuilt at one time or more. Did they rework these in the field ever???

BTT, someone?

PS The grips look great but the right one appears cleaner or newer.

I am no expert, but I don't think she has been through a rebuild... most rebuilds got parked. She's and old one to boot. I think you got a nice one.
