Many Years ago I was lucky enough to inherit a 1943 Colt 1911 from my Grandpa. I was just out of College and it was my first hand gun. I knew it had some value but being a DUMB 22 year old(no kids) I figured I would trade it for several firearms to start my own collection. Biggest mistake ever! Anyway I traded it to NW Armory and of course they wanted it bad and at the time I felt they gave me a fair value on trade. Needless to say it was probably one of their best trades of all times. So now I am reaching out to see if anyone knows or has any leads on this pistols whereabouts. I know it's a pipe dream but why not give it a shot. Stranger things have happened. It's probably the crown jewel of someones collection. Colt 1911-A1 SN 942566 Thanks NWF!
