Our Assessment: Colt’s 1911 served the United States military through two World Wars and several other conflicts, is still in use by some units today, and has become popular with law enforcement, competitors, and recreational shooters across the nation. The design has seen some updates including a firing-pin block safety, higher profile sights, and more ergonomic grips, but the basic design and fantastic trigger remain the same after more than a century. This example is chambered for the softer-shooting 9mm Luger cartridge, able to hold nine rounds in its single stack magazines. The pistol comes in its original box with a pair of magazines and factory paperwork. It appears to have seen little if any use since leaving the factory, likely having spent most of its life in the box. If you’re looking for your first 1911 or your last, this would be a good pony to add to the stable. Please see our photos and good luck!
