Ithaca M1911A1 Help
 
2 Attachment(s)
I have a chance to purchase this 1911, but I'm not very familiar with older weapons. Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
-Jim

Whats the asking price?

Jimf 02-16-2013 02:13 PM

The seller has asked that I make an offer, It's been sitting in his basement for years and neither of us know its value,

Ooooh, hard one-----------
Offer him $500 & call me if he'll take it :)

It appears to be in great shape.
What's the inside look like?
Is it a shooter? (Does he shoot it?)
Can you shoot it?

Depending on the answers and your inspection you'd be safe to start off with a $500 offer.

It looks like this Ithaca was built in early 1944.

The inside looks good, I striped it in order to clean.
I'm going to the range later today.

I would love to have that. I didn't know Ithaca made a 1911. Actually I didn't know they made any pistols. My dad and I have had plenty of Ithaca rifles and shotguns. We lived down the road from Ithaca.

nice looking. i would buy it simply because it's an Ithaca. the production numbers during WWII were equal to Colt. Remington-Rand had the highest production during the war and Union Switch & Signal and then Singer with the lowest production.

it does look to be in very good shape looking at the pictures. personally i would take a chance on it if it was me. i'd buy it even if it didn't work!
