New member posting his M1911A1 - 1945 all matching.
« on: April 20, 2018, 09:46:15 PM »
I found this 1911 a little while back.
Sniffing through info. in the books I have and on-line sources, but if anyone knows more about this one, let me know.

It is all 1945 dated, the finish is a great park that has turned a green shade -
There is a very light layer of oil on this as the box it travelled in was a little damp - I took the photos just as the sun was going down tonight - I'll add one with the oil wiped down and "dried."

Nice I like how you accessorize this and the other you posted. The period details make it more interesting

I had a new leather GI shoulder holster 30 years ago, but foolishly sold it to a co-worker. It was right handed so that influenced my selling it.
