Buy? 1943 Ithaca M1911
My friendís father has had this gun for 40 years and it has had very little use. They know I am into guns so they asked me if I want it.
Itís an Ithaca M1911 A1 and judging by the serial number that I looked up I believe itís a batch from 1944 that was sent to an English port. Everything appears to be original from the slide, barrel and all the way to the sight. The manufacturing stamps appear to be correct too. He wants $800 but I am sure I can get it for $700
Buy or donít buy?
I got it one piece at a time, and it didn't cost me a dime
