If you collect hand guns, this Colt for sale will enhance any collection.  There are many used guns for sale, but few that combine the history, age and condition of this 45 1911.

The serial number ( 312***) on this Colt 1911 tells us that it was made between May and October of 1918, possibly just a few days before the end of WW 1.

It comes with an original two tone Colt magazine. 

I had trouble getting really nice pictures of the complete pistol, but the close-ups turned out very nice. 
Click to enlarge and study them closely.  There may be a nicer 1911 out there somewhere, but most of us will never have the opportunity to own it, let alone see it.


Everything is crisp and clear.  There is no holster wear and the finish is 100%.  It is simply magnificent.

I have owned this weapon for over a decade and have never holstered it, fired it, loaded it or worked the slide, safety or takedown.  Every time I touched it has been wearing cotton gloves.

I was fortunate over the years to own some excellent firearms, but the time for me to buy guns is over.  I am selling off that collection to pay the mortgage.  It came down to guns or shelter and shelter won.
I also have an extensive collection of WW 2 militaria that will be listed as time permits.

I will accept payment by...
Cash in person
USPS money orders
Bank wire transfers
Gold or valuable gems. ;-)

Unfortunately the bad guys got here before you with other forms of payment.


I am not a dealer.  I am just a retired fellow whose retirement plan did not meet it's promises, so my collection must go to pay bills.

OK, here's the fine print...It's an old gun.  I will not warranty that it is safe to shoot. As with any used weapon, one must have it checked by a gunsmith prior to firing.
Shipping and FFL costs will be the responsibility of the buyer.
The sale must comply with all state and federal laws in effect at the time of the sale.
