Re: What's a WWI 1911 Worth?
I thought the 1911 was replaced by the 1911A1 in 1924, well before WWII?
Thanks for the info, crockett007. I'm really just looking for a good working pistol that has at least a slide and frame that were originally from a WWI era 1911 (pre A1).
I restore cars for a living so I'm used to the idea of things being refinished and having new/replaced parts. Plus, I don't have thousands to spend, so I just want the best bang for my buck. I'm not interested in how much it may be worth one day or how collectible it is. A gun that started life as a WWI 1911 is pretty collectible in my book, even if it's not worth much in the real world!
