IF you are a serious collector of military 1911A1s, AND the gun is all original, AND in excellent condition- maybe.

That dates back to WW 2. IMHO, and my opinion only- the Ithacas were some of the worst of the military 45s.

If you are looking for a shooter, I feel you can do better for less.

defiantly can get something nicer for less. but I am also a fan on military weapons. Would defiantly prefer another brand, just didnt know if that was a diamond I should snag or not..

I'd pass for that price-
A fan on military weapons & like the 1911? Get a modern 1911 GI mdl :)
In fact for $1200 get two :D

ok, i've owned another 1911, for about a week. When I said my first 1911 I meant the first one to be part of my collection. Got the Taurus for 300.00 to flip.. lol

I've got a 1944 Ithaca M1911A1 and wouldn't take $12,000 for it but that's just me.

I happen to know where you can get another one. Not sure on the price, I'll look back through some of my threads and see if I commented on it. It has either ivory or imitation ivory. Pretty good condition, not perfect. Is marked from (according to the shop owner) it was US issued, and then apparently recovered by British troops, marked by them, and then later given back to the US. I asked him about the lend/lease and if that had anything to so with it and he said he researched the markings and no, it wasn't a lend/lease gun. I know nothing, that's the story I got from the shop owner.

Nope. Been digging, can't find any place where I mentioned a price, but I THINK it was around 3k. Maybe $2500ish.
