    Boy I'd pay alot to find the one I carried as a MP. It was serial # 1448009 and I believe it was a Ithica. I wonder what the Army did with all those 1911's when they switched to the Beretta.

    One of my friends used to tell about how, during one summer in the Army Reserves, he and another soldier spent 2 weeks "de-milling" hundreds of 1911s and rifles (can't remember which model right now) with torches. He said it made him sick to have to ruin all of those weapons.

    Sorry to say my father had his brothers original 45 from WW1 , pretty much unfired !! because he was a half track supply driver and never saw combat . He sold it at his garage sale for $75 about 10 years ago before he passed away . The only thing I have is the picture of him on the truck with the gun strapped to his side .

    I have my uncles 1911 serial number 53XXX. It was made in 1913 and has the original army holster. The gun is in great shape.
