Nice trade Iloveguns!
That is a good example of a older Springfield. As much as you might want to make it look like new I think the value will hold better in current condition better than rebluing it. I also believe the trigger has been replaced and might be worth finding an old stock trigger to bring it back to orginal condition. If it shoots/functions well I think the wear, shows the age well and is a plus and should be kept in that condition as it will appeal to collectors in the future.

The second pistol was a bonus.

Nice trade!

NO, BUT IT IS A 1911!

Nice snag guns!

First question to you is the same I ask my friends that buy a vintage car, what do you want to do with it? Restore or restro-rod it?

If your intention is to restore and have a vintage stock 1911 then there is little to do much beyond re-bluing.

Now if you want to hot rod the thing boy do I have a ton of suggestions for you!

I think this one I am just going to keep as original as possible. I now however have the freaking 1911 bug. Can't wait to save up and get a brand spanking new one. Now I just have to decide which one

And see how quickly that happens?!? Bang! One day the guy is a Glock owner, the next day he has his first 1911, hasn't even shot it yet and the 1911 is already casting it's magical spell to breed within poor iloveguns' safe.
