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 is a more recent version, the 1911 Classic. This specific variant is chambered for .38 Super and has a two-tone finish with a stainless slide and blue frame. The pistol appears to have seen little, if any use. It still has its inventory tag on the trigger guard! Whether you’re a fan of the 1911, the .38 Super cartridge, or just beautiful pistols, this would be a good pony to add to the stable. Please see our photos and good luck!
