Hi all !
I am totally newbie here. I found this Colt 1911. It is in original condition and guaranteed last time used and fired 1945. Since then nothing has been done to it. Not even cleaned. It has been hidden for seven decades but still seems to work nicely. I would like to clean it.. at least...
Per usinflation.com , $37.50 in 1939 would be worth $659.69 in 2017 dollars.
I have recently 'deconstructed' a 1939 Stoeger catalog for the purpose of making and sharing flat scans.
These will be 400dpi.
