I was spoiled and grew up around my fathers Kahr K40, Colt Python, and 1911. For some reason I always loved the way the 1911 shot and felt in my hand. Well I finally got a hold of my Great Grandfather's 1911. It was sold it another family member, but now its back in the blood line. My father is also glad that I will no longer be borrowing his :laugh: . I had my fingers crossed that it would be an original World War II era gun, but after some research it is a World War II slide on an aftermarket aluminum frame. The frame was made by AR Sales Co. which when I googled I found they made aftermarket frames for 1911's in the 60's and 70's. Probably when my Great Grandfather got the gun. What I need help with is should I attempt to track down a period correct frame for the gun? Or leave it and just enjoy it as a shooter? It has the correct US Army holster, surplus military ball ammo, and a gunnysack. Oh and I will try to get some pictures of it up.
