found some guns
 
cleaning my grandmas house out after her passing we found my grandpa's army issued 1911. sn: 454160 (i think made in 1918/1919) and also some old boxes of remington dupont .45 and some twin cities arsenal .45. also with the US issued shoulder holster but it's missing some straps. also has 4 magazines.

Also a spanish "LLAMA .32) stoeger arms i think, new in box with cleaning rod and screwdriver. and a box of .32 remington dupont rds. I don't plan on selling any of it but does any one have an idea of the value of these guns.

my uncle wants to keep them for self defense and i want to buy him a new guy and trade him for the 1911 so i can keep it for collection.

thanks,
alan

If I had my Grandaddys army issued 1911 I wouldn't sell it or trade it for the world. Let alone use it for self defense. I can't answer the how much is it worth question but I do agree with buying a gun for your uncle and keeping that priceless 1911.

ps get ready to bring on the da noise and bring on da funk or something along those lines. :p

Sell the ammo to a collector & keep the pistols. Get your uncle an RIA 1911 or something along those lines.

Agree on the ammo. Dupont got entirely out of the explosives industry a LONG time ago. Do not want to think about the age of the ammo. Will it still work?

Maybe.

i was never planning on selling the pistols and would probably never shoot the 1911. i want to keep it in the family so i'm gonna try to get my uncle something like a ruger p95 or something like that that is not expensive b/c he just wants something for home defense. he could care less what it is. he's not really a gun guy. and the ammo i was never going to fire it. i will probably just hold on to it unless i find someone that is really really interested in it.
thanks,
alan

That baby is a M1911! Don't do a thing with it other than keep it safe, dry, oiled and give it plenty of love.

Your Colt was built late in 1918.

The value runs from $1,000 for a 60% up to $4,250 for a 98% gun.

Your gun however is priceless due to it's history.

Restoration of that gun would ruin it's value! Leave it alone. PLEASE!
