Need help with a value

Post by Creeping Death »

Got a buddy who has asked me for a value on a 1911. Presumed WWII era (roughly), stamped Government Issue. Weapon has been refinished (parkerized). Have no idea on round count, obviously.

Anybody got a clue what a 1911 of this nature would be worth?

Recently, a new aquaintance showed me his 1911 that was made in 1918. It was in relatively good shape. It would go for $1200 - $1500 in the shape that it is in now.

Have him check with Farnsworth in Vonore, Robbie has one of the largest WW1 and 2 1911/1911a1 collections around.

In post-op (I was still out) the Dr. told my wife that I would be unable to move for a week or so and to keep giving me the Oxycodone every 4 hours, keep my arm immobile and come see him in two weeks for a initial progress evaluation and to remove the stitches. I threw the sling away the next morning, threw the pills away after the first six (screwing my head up), started doing range of motion shit and taking a few motrin 4 days into it, went back to driving at 5 days, removed my stitches at 10 days, and go to see the Dr. tomorrow for mt "initial evaluation" to see if I am able to start doing anything.
