Nice blasters.

That is a good looking pistol. Through all the American historical worship, I still have no 1911 experience. This has to be fixed.

The one on top is a 1918 production Colt Govt. that had belonged to my Grandfather. The bottom one is a ATI that I traded for today at a gun show.

The old Colt is all original as far as I can tell and still has a great finish except for on the grip. It still shoots as good as any modern pistol I've fired. The Phillipino is still to be determined. But the fit and finish seems great.Click image for larger version

A couple really nice pistols, Sir.

If you don't mind, what is the serial number on the Colt? It's later than 1918, the finger relief cuts behind the trigger and new style arched mainspring housing, short triggers, and long tang on the grip safety weren't incorporated into the design until April of 1924. The plastic stocks didn't appear on the commercial Colt's until 1946, when pistols for the civilian market were resumed.

Thank you!

The SN is C2247XX. When I first got it I did a serial number search that told me 1918. But I'm obviously no Colt historian so I may have chosen a bad source. I didn't even know my grandfather owned it until after he passed so I wasn't able to get the history on the gun. I love the pistol though so any insight you could throw my way would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: now that you brought it to my attention I did another check and got 1947. Does that make more sense? Looks like you might have proven me a bit ignorant. I honestly do appreciate though.

im really missing my 1911s now. had a POS Kimber Custom II as my second pistol i ever bought. took me quite awhile to go back to a 1911 but had a Springfield Armory Stainless Mil-Spec and a Stainless TRP. both were amazing pistols. i traded down the 2 1911s and 2 m1a rifles for glocks and ARs when i had a major career change and got nervous about money. now i miss them all.

You're quite welcome, I'm a bit of an old Colt fan.

The references I have, say it's a 1947, and by it's features, and the rollmark on the slide, I'd say that's correct.
And, it is a beautiful example by the way.

This is my 1949, you notice the similarities and a few minor differences.



and a 1950

Thanks again. And that's a fine pair of pistols you have there, I get the impression that there's a few more in the stable. The old colts really are great.

I have had a Colt Government model series 80 for about 15 years now. Shoots good at the range. I have had done a trigger job and replaced the return spring with a shock buff and rod/spring assy.

While my normal goto leans towards Glocks, I have several 1911's as well.

Of the recent entries, the Remington R1 is in my opinion, as good as many of it's more expensive counter parts. It is an excellent entry level 1911 for those on a budget IMO.

I'm considering getting a 1911. Any recommendations on brand? Not wanting anything special. Nothing shiny, good reliability, and 9mm chambering preferred. That's my only real stipulations.
