    If in very good condition, you have some valuable arms there. The Colt could be a $1,000 pistol, and the carbine three times or more, as much. IF they are original and unaltered in very good condition. Please when you can post pictures of them. Then we can give you a more accurate value. Best regards, Kirk

    You have some valuable guns GT.

    Your 1911 was made in 1918.

    Your M1A1 was made in April 1943.


    I would have these firearms appraised, do the same for the holster also.
