It is a Colt 1911 A1, probably a MK 4, ( Series 80 ). Did you buy it new? No paper work with it?

I think that if you got it for 450 dollars you should have been wearing a mask because you stole it. Yes, I also think you could double that amount if you sold it.

I would think Springfield could answer some of your questions. Possibly a manual.

That gun is beautiful! But it's too purty to shoot! Still, for what you got it for, I would keep it!

Technically it's a Government Model clone. M1911 and M1911 A1 were the Ordnance Department's nomenclature for the Colt auto loading pistol. Colt dubbed the commercial version the "Government Model".

It's a series 80 from a limited run for Lew Horton. Made around 1994.

I have one of these I got in an estate buy. It's in the original box with all the paperwork but it's the same stuff that came with all Series 80s. Mine is different only in that it has walnut grips.

Take that beautiful puppy out and shoot the beans out of it while others drool all over your ammo tray. Having a firearm unfired is like spending a lifetime without female companionship, just ain’t a lot of fun.
