M1911 A1 group


Recommended Posts

A few U.S. WWII KA-BAR blade marked USMC 1219C2’s knives and M1911 A1’s for the weekend. The first three KA-BAR’s have a blued blade finish, next one Bonderized blade finish, and the last one a dark Parkerized blade finish. The .45’s are Colt, US&S, Remington Rand, and Ihtaca, (in the box).

Impressive display as is! Can't say I have an original 1911 yet. A Colt would be nice but they made the most. A decent US&S would be very cool for a mid-war example. Nice to see these nice

examples. I'm sure a lot of time and effort went into putting these together. I still don't understand how some stuff that was in such demand managed to survive in the original boxes and packaging for 75+ years. Do you have a USMC emphasis in your collection?

Interesting thing about the Singers is most believe they all went to airmen yet I remember a marine vet who kept his 1911 speaking on some documentary telling about getting it. They landed on some island for deployment to the lines and some crates of 1911's were dropped off and broken open, said help yourself. No holsters, just the guns. He stuck one in his belt and went on. Showing it in the documentary the sucker was a Singer of all things! Who knows what the actual stories of some of these pieces are.

I thought WW2 production had Remington Rand producing the most with Ithica and Cold in the middle and US&S being the least...(Singer excluded of course).

Thank you to all that have served our country and to your families that have sacrificed without your presence at home. Thank you to all that have given their lives for my freedom and to their families that suffer. May God bless you!

I only have this one individual picture of the Ithaca. It is pictured in Scott Meadows book. I can get them back out and take some individual pictures if you like.

Nice set of pistols! Sure, any shots are appreciated, interesting to see the changes over the production life. Those pistols are a big favorite of mine. If any of them are arsenal refurbs could you add it to this thread please:

Thanks!
