Jackpot 1911 or NOT?
I just inherited a Colt 1911 and I'm trying to get an honest value on it, and maybe an education on Colt pistols, as I've been Sig Sauer fan for a long time!
I'ver been insulted one too many times by "the locals", so I'm turning to you guys, the experts, lol!
All that I know is that, according to the serial #, it was manufactured in 1912, and it's nickel plated (probably not original, but is nice), and it's in, what I consider 60% condition, or better!
As the story goes, my grandfather was in WW2, and after the war, he purchased "his" Colt 1911 for a mere $12, and for extra $8 bucks, had it transfered legally! True or not, can't really say, just going by what grandma told me. The pistol does have an "AA" stamped on the left side, just above the trigger guard, if this helps!
