I just got a Colt 1911 that according to the SN was manufactured in 1913 and shipped to the USMC along with 1249 of its friends. Is this considered a collectors item and would it hold more value in original form or restored? Im just happy as a clam to have it and I kind of want to shoot it some just to say I have... Should I just keep it in the safe or what? I dont know what to do here... Im torn. I want to respect this piece of firearms history and give it the treatment it deserves. I think if it could talk it would want to be shot... What do you folks think?
