This is a Springfield 1911 used in WWI. It was manufactured in 1914. This gun was professionally restored by the late Bill Adair of Texas about 10 years ago. The gun is all correct, but has a post WWI replacement Springfield barrel. At the time of the restoration new diamond checkered Walnut grips were added. The magazine is correct with a lanyard ring and rolled edges. Only 25,767 pistols were manufactured by Springfield for WWI. This gun was produced the first year of manufacture. All the lettering, inspector marks, and the American Eagle cartouche are crisp and clear. This is in .45 ACP caliber with a 5" barrel. The bore is excellent and the mechanics function flawlessly. This gun has not been fired since the restoration and is rated at 99% condition. The restoration was done utilizing the same bluing techniques which would have been used in 1914. This is a beautiful gun and would make a great addition to any firearms collection. The price of one like this in original condition would be 3 times the asking price of this one. You won't be disappointed.
