Please feel free to delete or move my thread if this doesn't belong here or anywhere else. I am considering selling my vintage 1911, but I need help to find a fair price for it. I’m not a vintage 1911 expert by any mean, so I would really appreciate your help. There are things that I found about this gun after a research. But again, I’m not an expert, so I could be wrong as well. Please correct me if you see any errors. 1. The frame is from 1917 per the serial number, but the slide is a WWII USGI. There is a possibility that the slide is from 1918 per that's the 1st year of the Colt started appearing in the middle of the slide. (I could be totally wrong with this.) 2. The gun doesn’t have stamps for rearsenal work, therefore the gun was parkerized perhaps by civilians. 3. Safety lever seems to be non-original. 4. I believe the barrel is from the Remington during WWII era, per the "P" stamp on it. 5. The magazine is not the original as well. Thus, I know that this is a typical “mixmaster” 1911 that I know for sure that I will not make any fortune out of it. I just wanted to get some opinions for the reasonable price for my ad. The gun shoots amazingly good, totally functional. I shoot it routinely. There were moments I considered to buy parts to 'correct' this gun. However, somehow I felt this would be a pretty rude approach to this old horse with lots of stories behind. Offers in this thread will not be considered and the gun will be listed in the classifieds once the value is determined. Thanks!
