For sale is a colt 1911A1 US Army. I am no colt or 1911 expert, but from what i can tell this is an original, numbers matching, not refinished WWII bring back. Serial # puts it early 1942. Has all the proof marks and inspector marks where they should be. Original "coltwood" grips and newer colt wood grips. Also has leather holster marked "US" on front and "Sears 1942" on back. I dont believe the magazine to be original. Some scratches around slide stop, probably from field stripping, but otherwise only normal holster/handling wear. FTF in Or, $1500 obo.

Can you post some better close up pics, natural or diffused lighting so there's no glare?

Can't tell from the pics if the parts are original or not.

PM's replied to, still available. Had some nice trade offers but I'm looking to sell. Also forgot to say this package comes with two mags.

Final price drop. Pistol, holster, two mags, original grips and later colt grips. $1600.
If it doesn't sell this time its back in the safe.

Wish I was in your area. There is a local shop here with a 42 Colt and he has $4000 on it. But all his guns are over priced.

Good luck.
