need help identifying 1911
I never owned a 1911 45 before, nor do I know anything about them. I always wanted on but never could afford one. Now the kids are all gone and on their own, I can save a little money.
I was just recently approached by a co-worker who asked me if I wanted his fathers Colt 1911 that was hanging in his closet. His father died a while back and his mother found it while cleaning out his old stuff.
He said his father had taken it back with him from the war, it also has the holster from then too.
My question is, are there any identifying marks I should look for.
What is a good price I should offer. He had mentioned $500 t0 $700.
