I am looking to buy a 1919 colt 1911. It has an olive green tint.
The small parts look to be blued. The chamber of the barrel has been
polished or buffed. Does not have correct magazine. ser.#589xxx .
I would not say it is mint but it has to be at least 90%+.
It does have wooden double diamond grips. The cuts are not sharp,they
have flatened a bit over the years.
The barrel has four numbers stamped at the link. I did not notice a"hp"
on top either. It is stamped A A on the left side of frame. Thank you
for any help,FRANK

Frank, This is a great link. http://www.coolgunsite.com/ AA is Augusta Arsenal..it is a rebuild but nothing to scoff about. The re-arsenaled 1911's have a great deal of history and if it hasn't been messed with since re-do it is worth some bucks..$650 on up seems to be the rate depending on where you are located. I snagged an AA rebuild that originally had been shipped to the Phillipines in 1917..and who knows where it went after that..paid $650.

Coneten,Thanks for the fast reply!
I have been collecting WW1 and WW2 rifles.The price for this 1911 is $1200. I do not want be taken,again (Lugers)!!
The 1911 seems to be in very good shape. I know it has been re-arsenaled.The print on the slide is very clear. There is no pitting. The edges have wear , which one would expect. What I have noticed is in the last 2 or 3 years US military weapons have went up 3-4 times the value of what they were. Thanks for your help, FRANK
