1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Damn it's a dandy setup. I have a Colt 1911 WWII war model also of the same year. I just don't have the knowledge on them to help you with the value of it though. Good luck. It's a collector piece for sure.

    Couple of things. Black Army finish started around serial 400,000. The front of the slide that comes down and toward the frame, usually ends before it reaches the frame. The radius continues past the start of the frame on this gun. Both examples listed above show what I am saying. Not sure this is the original slide. Just a guess. Go to this site and you can obtain a lot of information.

    I apologize for the first picture being out of focus, here's a close up of said markings on this 1911:

    I remember this particular piece was sold to a nice young lady in FL, who has CCW permit, so her FFL hand it over the counter to her right after it arrived. She bought it for her husband's birthday. What a great girl.

    That's a pretty classy set up. I would think it would bring large bucks. I am not a military collector so I cannot speak intelligently though. I have much of the stuff, but not the compass or the first aid kit and mine may be several different years.
