Default OK Guys, so how did I do?

OK, I was at the Gun Show today (without Scubie) and this gun caught my eye. I don't normally look at nickle plated guns but there was something about this one. It turned out to be an Ithaca 1911. Supposedly it is a "parade" model. It looks really good, the plating looks original, the marks on the side are crisp. Is is marked "United States Property" and has the Frank J Atwood "FJA" mark behind the trigger, above the mag release. There is also a "P" below the magazine release, either an F or an L on the slide near the rear sight, and what looks like 2 upside down "V's" in front of the slide lock.The bore looks good. I have been looking for a "United States Property" 1911 for Shawn for a long time, but, since he absolutely dislikes Ithaca guns, , I guess this one is mine.

Very nice. I'd love to have an old war horse 1911. I think AA stands for Augusta Arsenal. Maybe it was rebuilt and or plated there...

I also saw one of the TALO Ghost Commander specials, if I remember right, it was serial number 00102. A shop from Lubbock with a booth at the show had it. It was $995.00. It was sweet, it is a lightweight commander. They didn't have anything with it showing that it was a special edition or anything.

Here is a picture taken of my dad in 1946 outside of his Army barracks. He was in the 11th Airborne Division and was about to go into Tokyo to pickup another trooper from his squad that was at the MP station. That trooper had gotten drunk and had been fighting. Whenever a soldier left base he was armed - there were still some ill feelings between the Americans and Japanese. In the original picture you can see that the 45 he is holding is not standard issue. His 45 was nickel plated and wore ivory grips. Some day I may get an old army gun and set it up like that one.

That's a very nice find Glasshartt. I think a lot of the guys on here would have done exactly what you did and scoop that collector piece up for the history alone.

Very nice addition to the family.
