So many factors, Made in 1919 but reissued in WWII, which means it was modified to 1911A1 specs or was it? a few 1911s slipped through the cracks and were issued as they were. Most WWII 1911A1's were rebuilt at least once. Does the gun have the proper barrel, grips, safety and firing pin stop? Who made it, A 1919 1911 should be Colt, but is both the slide and receiver Colt or is it mismatch through rebuild, perhaps a Colt receiver and a Remington slide? With out knowing these things a proper assessment can not be given. Clear photos are a must. A 1919, unaltered Colt 1911 can go for 2 to 3 thousands { or even a lot more }, A 1919 1911A1 ( if completed with all proper parts } can go for 2,000, a 1911A1 with mismatch parts can go for 600 to 1,000.I'm sorry, I don't think anyone can give you a realistic value on a WWII 1911 with out photos and more information. Could be wrong, sure been wrong before and I/m pretty sure I might be wrong again in the future. The world of firearm collecting has gotten so complicated that most of the fun is being taken out of it.
