Just thought I would show a few photos of a "new" 1911 added to the collection! It looks like it was dropped on the beach, and found yesterday lol.

I just wonder what stories this this gun could tell!

What a piece of junk. Shame a great gun ended up like that. Nothing but a paper weight.

Crash
It is a shame this fine pistol suffered the damage that it did! Like you I wish some of them could talk! What a story of their past life they could tell!

Yes the gun is rough but, John Moses Browning did not design paper weights.
Inside the rails look good in the slide and frame.
Replaced all springs and barrel, put a few rounds thru it then broke it down and checked for cracks.
None were found, and 50 rounds more were ran thru it.
The 1911 was made like a hammer, made to take a beating and still go on.
The gun will never be a regular shooter, and will be kept as more of a relic.
The last thing I need is a paper weight lol

Fantastic. Just another reason why my 1911s are my favorites.

Great to see that something CAN be done to what appears as a hopeless case. May it come to be a "productive member of YOUR society"!

I would guess a "Rusty State" but it looks like he is moving it to a "State of Grace"
