    Springfield model 1911 U.S. ARMY (not for the faint of heart)

    I picked this up on a online auction and got it at a reasonable price and knew it was as close as I'll ever get to owning a rare bird. I have not tore into it yet to look at parts. I believe it is a 1916.

    Not knowing much about the finish on these early Springfields -- is this highly polished or has it been plated? All the stampings seem so clear for such an old pistol.

    The yellow hue makes me think it’s nickel plated, like the 1903 from your other post. Might have been the same owner who got both plated

    Markings are still crisp, if the price was right ...

    It's a 1915...completed the week of August 14. It was a big week for them. They completed 600 pistols. They only had 4 weeks throughout their entire production where they completed that many pistols. All those weeks were in 1915.
