Howdy

Here is a 1911 from 1918.











A 1903 Hammerless at the top from 1920 and a 1908 Hammerless at the bottom from 1910.

Nice collection I really like those Hammerless models. Do have a few 1911's.

I'm pretty sure it did. I got a nice web belt and leather holster with it and the holster looks pretty old.

Inherited a 1911 "C" civilian model .45 mfd'd in 1915. I'll get a pic up for you folks. Have a 1911A1 1970's Combat Commander that I carried as a personal sidearm for 22 years as a Corpsman of Marines and through Desert Shield and Desert Storm.
