According to the slide the rampant colt is in the middle of the slide markings. That change dates it as above #285000. 1918. Nice history on it though.

ETA: Those are Spegels on the Burton pistol. I bought it with G10 grips on it, but the build sheet said it had Spegel Kingwood. I called Craig Spegel and talked to him. Nicest man on the planet. Told him my predicament. He said he couldn't get Kingwood any more, but to hold on. He went back and found some Kingwood blanks and I ordered them. Told him I just wanted to get in line and didn't care how long it took. I had them in 30 days. Cost was $65. Amazing.


Love the Burtons. I like his work quite a bit. Ball cuts are a fav of mine too.

I've posted this several times...My special carry I flew with in SEA...My grandfather's gun passed down to me when I was 15, had it blued and changed out all old parts...My Squadron CO gave me a special permit for overseas carry as approval was up to individual commanders of Special Operations in those days. The sights,trigger shoe and custom beaver tail I had made were the add-ons....I have Sasquatch hands

I got Glockitis and got rid of a Colt Government Model and a couple of Ruger 1911s.
Trying to recapture lost dignity with this latest production Retro basic model:

Perfect when carried with Pop's old .30-30 Win '94 for Sunday go to meeting,
or just sitting on the bench out front and whittling while the Wife does the shopping
at the local grocery.
Just like I saw the good ol'boys doing in Harlan, KY.

As medical student at UK, my first ER experience was seeing one of those good ol'boys wheeled in on a stretcher,
having assumed room temperature by the time the ambulance got him out of his "holler" and into Lexington.
He had a .45-caliber hole in his forehead.
X-ray showed a .45 ACP hardball had come to rest at the back side of his skull.
His brother had shot him.
Those Eastern Kentuckians have hard heads.

I've always wanted one of those old war horses. Scared I'd get ripped off tho and don't know reasonable prices or what to look for on them to ensure it's not a bunch of parts faked to be old.

That’s the problem with military 1911’s, too damn many fakes. There are 50 times more fake Singers than real ones made.
Most, we’re rearmored in the military especially if carried in 2 wars. In fact the transition model 1924 was a mix of 1911 slides and A1 frames. Then others would pull original 1911 parts like the barrel and install A1 barrels and grips or whatever to pass off as a genny.

If you really want one suggest you go here. http://coolgunsite.com/pistols/1911infopage.htm

Never ever buy one without being able to break it down and inspect the markings.

Baers are worth it (to me), even if it means selling a few middle of the road guns to get just one gun that is exactly what you want.

I did the same thing with .308 precision rifles years back. I always wanted a Sako TRG, but they were a lot of money. I ended up selling a few rifles as well as scopes, and getting a TRG 22 in .308. Have not regretted it at all.


THE CHAIR IS AGAINST THE WALL.

The Tikka T3 in .308 Winchester is the Glock 19 of the rifle world.

My Les Baer has been nothing short of phenomenal in the years that I've owned it. A good amount of money and a bit of a wait to get it because it was special ordered with the frame hard chromed and Les Baer's Rolo low profile adjustable night sights. Worth it!
