i have a original colt 1911 manufacture date of 1918, it has the "G" stamp meaning it was a pistol made for WW1. it has the "united states property" down the side as well as colt 1911 US ARMY. this is the real deal!! the barrel is not all shot out and it is in 100% working order. im looking to trade for an ar-15 or similar style rifle. let me know what you have! you can reach me in a text or phone call @ 541-404-8876 keep in mind this is a $2000 pistol, dont send me junk offers please. This pistol was for sure used in ww1 and Vietnam, so there is a VERY good chance it was used in ww2 and Korea as well!! Also I forgot to add that it will come with 4 or 5 mags I can't remember exactly how many I have. They are all period correct though, they are the ones without the lanyard loops. Here is the picture of the armorers serial number for when the pistol was put into service. If you have ever been in the military you know that all pistols have a secondary serial number engraved on them once they are put into service. All the older ones anyways, the newer ones they haven't been doing that with. Will also come with 4 mags and from what I was told 3 original lead nosed service rounds!!
