    Picked up another Colt .45

    Only this time it's not a 1911. I just picked this up this old warrior today from a friend of mine. While it still locks up as tight as a bank vault and the timing is perfect, the original finish is pretty much gone. On a positive note, it has never been messed with and has matching numbers on the frame, crane and barrel. It is a very early one probably made late in October or early November 1917.

    Along with the gun I got a new box of .45 Auto Rim cartridges, a dozen loaded six round clips and a couple dozen empty clips. At least with this one I won't have to worry about damaging the finish when I shoot it.

    I like it! It looks just the way an old war horse should look, well worn but not abused
