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.

    Pictures added had to get camera this morning

    The sights are correct Ken just loose or removed and replaced at some time.

    TTT

    Colt 1938 Army contract 1911A1 only 1296 made and rumer has it that many of the prewar contract guns are at the bottom of the sea.Thats why so few are found in collections today.
    Colt ser.# 7133xx on frame and Ser.# 7133xx on slide 15 off and not matching,but still all 1938 contract.This was probably done aboard ship?

    Proof marks are all correct, yet the frame is plum blue and may have been reblued.The slide looks to be the correct color blue but the sigths have been removed and replaced.
    It is not perfect but still a Colt 1938 Army Contract Gun.
    Best offer over $3,000.00 accepted.

    Let's see : non- matching no.'s, reblued, and not original sights. Sounds like just another shooter to me and surely way overpriced.

    So what's mine worth then if your's is $3000+? Where did you get your price from?

    Mine dates 1939 with "United States Property" markings "Model of 1911 US Army"? All numbers matching from head to tail. Original sights, original bakelite grips. Gun has been reblued.

    I'll take the first bid over $5000 for mine.

    John G, I wish you the best of luck but if you're really wanting to sell it I think you're too high. If it were all matching, not re-blued and all original it would be worth that much. Not trying to p** on your parade just offering some advice.

    Ruck, no sense on peeing in the mans cornflakes. It is slightly overpriced. That I will give you. No need to be condesending to the guy. Constructive criticism is no problem.

    It's more than "slightly" over priced. It's probably every bit of $2000 over priced.

    if an original 1938 is highly collectable because only 1296 were made and because an unknown number were lost at sea. and if this gun no longer qualifies as an original 1938, did the value of original 1938's just increase a little bit in price as a result of the disclosure in his post? - one less fish in the pool, so to speak. just wondering

    Way way overpriced. Just a somewhat classy shooter. Rather have a Kimber.

    If you put this for sale over on the Colt forum you will find out what it is worth.
