Friend of mine and I were going through some of his uncles old stuff. We found quite a few older pistols but one is getting us curious. From what I can remember off the top of my head, its a .45 M1911 US Army pistol, pristine condition, but has age. Says "Property of US Army". But the main question is, is it legal for a citizen to own a pistol like this? It has a serial number (i think, not too much of a gun nut) so can it be registered or? I have tried looking up some information but i cannot find anything on this subject that directly answers my question. We also found some belt feeds filled with bullets for some sort of a machine gun, as well as a shell of a M1919 Browning.
