Well I just talked to him and my Uncle did me a solid and paid for the majority of the pistol for my birthday. I thought he bought it but he just layed it back for me after I called him and practically drooled through the phone. He said he will have it checked for me but I can do that myself. I am paying a ridiculously low price for this pistol...like REALLY low. I almost feel bad but not really.
In case it isn't obvious, I have a BIG love for 1911s. They are my favorite handgun if not my favorite firearm PERIOD. I have rarely owned anything that goes bang that I wouldn't immediately trade for a 1911. The one exception was the pair of 1911s I traded for a Thompson 1927-A1 Deluxe. This will be the first Colt I have owned. I am thrilled it is a vintage warhorse from the Great War. Simply perfect.
I have owned the following makes:
and now, finally, a COLT!!!
