    I have for sale a 1951 Colt Government 1911 .45acp semi auto pistol. It has it's original blued finish, comes with one original 7 round Colt mag. The pistol is in beautiful condition, no rust or pitting. It has the common take down pin scratch, but over all I would rate its condition at 90%+. The blueing on the slide is near perfect, with the original deep mirror finish that you dont see on guns much anymore. The rifling is in excellent condition, with no pitting or problems. The inside of the gun is excellent as well, with some upgrades from Brownells recently added, installed by wichaka, one of the mods here at NWFA.

    Here is a list of all the aftermarket parts:

    New Houge aluminum grips
    New Wilson Combat Drop-in Beavertail Safety
    New Ed Brown Barstock Hardcore Hammer
    New Nowlin Sear
    New EGW Oversized firing pin stop
    New Chip McCormic aluminum adjustable trigger (hard to find one)
    New mainspring
    New recoil spring
    New firing pin spring
    Trigger job done- 4 1/2 lb trigger pull, breaks like glass.
    All work done by wichaka, who has years of experience as a Colt warranty gunsmith.

    This pistol had other aftermarket work done to it around the 1970's, here is a list of those parts still on the gun:

    King barrel bushing
    Unknown sights, adustable rear, very good quality

    This gun was test fired approximately 50 rounds after the work was done to it, and it was extremely accurate. Wichaka can testify to this, its condition, and the upgrades. This is a very, very nice pistol, I am unfortunately forced to sell for financial reasons.

    $1100.00 cash~ firm. No trades, FTF, preference given to CHL holders.

    I also have a few accessories I would sell with the gun~

    1 new Wilson combat 8 round mag
    1 new Galco leather belt holster, very expensive and nice
    100 rounds of new .45acp ammo

    $1275.00 cash~ firm, with accessories.

    Very nice indeed. I gotta check the sofa cushions tonight. My beer-swilling idiot friends are always losing kruggerands down there.

    After the work was done, we had a chance to take it out and run it thru some paces...its a tack driver too! Recoils even and straight back, for fast follow up shots.
