Default 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.

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!
