    The post was done as a warning to be careful out there. As bad as they were, they kept right on selling.

    The $1000 price tag for the fake Singer stocks stuck in my mind, but I couldn't remember where I got it. Now I seem to remember that a set sold at Rock Island Auction for that amount. Do you remember if that is correct?

    Yes I do and it was not me ! I looked at them & told the buyer well after he bought them that he got taken on them! The Colt rock ones were on a Singer that sold very fast on GI a few months back & we're not the first set I had seen.

    Same thing is happening with the repo exposed base magazines. Cylinder & Slide is reproducing the full blue or in the white magazines & guys are putting small spots of rust on them and wrapping them in old waxed paper and selling them as NOS ( new old stock ) magazines. And also doing it with some of there repo fire blue small parts .

    Yes, I think I remember the auction you refer to. A couple collector friends brought those grips by my gun show table to show them to me. I hated to hear the one had relied on the other fellow's advice, and had paid the $1000 (probably $1150 after the juice) at RIAC. I showed them the difference in the fakes and genuine Singer grips. I'd previously helped the fellow offering the bad advice identifying Singer barrels and magazines before, but apparently we hadn't yet discussed the fake grips.

Both have no markings on top of chambers they both have the S & H on the hood of barrel and the P on the back of the lugs .. Thank you Bob !!!!
    You are welcome! I'm glad they went to a good home. I had guessed that you had a correct barrel, since you didn't complain that this one did not.

    Well Bob we chatted when you posted them on one of the 1911 forums when you first bought them & I told you I had a barrel but would not part with it because they are so hard to find & also told you if you ever wanted to sell them I would be a buyer. I doubt you would have remembered that conversation as I am sure you had many at the time. What made me remember the guns was when I posted the pictures of my all S marked 1916 one of the other members told me there was a thread show us your 16's so I found the thread and removed my thread and added my 16 to the show us your 16's and as I looked at all the post I seen your 16 and remembered that you had it & the 1924 , so that's when I contacted you about them. I never forget mint guns and I never thought I would own 2 mint ones but fate & persistence sometimes come together!! I don't think I could ever split the guns up and I know where there is a mint 16 with both H & S and it's mint to but doubt I could pry it out of the owners hands without trading something that I do not want to give up . Thank you again Troy

    Sounds like a win/win. Bet I could have gotten more money out of you.
