Of course, the 1911 could be a rare item in countries with gun restrictions.

From the information it seems like the real thing, but certainly not rare. Overpriced by two to one.

That is twice what my son recently paid for an outstanding 1918 year 1911.

That said, it could be under market value where it is. Think about what the Canadians think about our SKS or SVT-40 prices.

Possibly i don't know enough about collectors 1911s to judge the price.
Neither do I but I do find the research interesting.
