    Requesting help with barrel & grip identification

    Hi All,

    I am in the process of going through my uncles estate and found a few gun parts that I was looking to identify. If anyone would be willing to share some information / expertise I would really appreciate it.

    From the research I’ve done, the barrel looks to be a 1911, but I wasn’t sure. I have attached photos of the markings on the barrel for reference.

    As for the grips I wasn’t sure if they were Colt grips or generic. There looks to be a “28” which is difficult to make out on the inside of both, and a listing of gun types but I can’t make out much.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Clay

    The barrel appears to be the common leg HP found on the Model 1911 beginning at about serial number 400,000 thru the end of production, but have never seen one with the HP that far back.

    Can't help you on the revolver stocks.

    Hard to tell on the stocks with those pics, they are Colt (Most likely Aftermarket). If I had to guess Aftermarket Walnut Colt E/I frame stocks. Try them on a Python/Officers Model/Official Police/Original Trooper/Three Five Seven/etc. to know for sure.
