    Oh well, guess it does not matter now, sold it for $1,000 at this weekends local gunshow. I didn't even make it to the entrance door to the show.

    Thanks for the help/info!

    It wasn't my grandfathers, but the guy who I got it from! And YES, I think he wanted it for bragging rights more than anything, Cash Is King

    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

    I coulda swore you said you inherited it from your grandfather.
