I recently received my Colt 1911A1 from CMP. The pistol was a 1911A1, manufactured in 1945. It took a while for order since my number was high but once contacted I had the pistol in 2 days. It was refinished like most but in excellent condition. I already shot 500 rounds through the pistol and it is very accurate. My 1911A1 is a historic relic but I enjoy shooting it because it is an iconic part of military history. I suspect it could have been carried in WWII, Korea and probably Vietnam. I am proud to own a piece of history.

Kudos to the staff at the CMP-could not be happier. Being a former paratrooper and peace officer, I am honored to own a piece of history. If only that gun could talk!
