    The guys on the 1911 forum felt my 45 had really been there, unlike many others. I have to agree.
    When dealing with liberals, always attribute to malice what would ordinarily be attributed to incompetence.

    Thank you Ryan. I've owned it for 30+ years and all the wear was before I received it. It has a lot of holster wear so I like to assume it was rebuilt for Korea and Viet Nam. I had the letter from Colt that it was originally shipped to the Brooklyn Army Terminal but I can't find the letter. Anyway, I think about all of the 1911's that went overseas in WWI went through the Army Terminal.

    What's not to like about a 1911? Well....maybe the Germans and Japanese didn't like them very much. Little hole in big hole out.
