I picked up a very nice 1931 Model M last weekend. It came with a tatered box with all the old papers. One of the papers included was an instruction sheet with a parts list with replacement pricing pictured below. If I added all the parts right, you could build your own for the price in the Title above. My guess is the complete pistol sold for much less. :)

Do you think Colt's will still honor my order if I send a copy of the order list and a check? :cool:

I remember seeing an old price list that listed a new colt 1911 national match for less than $40.00.
ahhhh, the good old days :)

Those were the good old days and the good old prices. But for most of us it may well have been harder to come up with those sums of money, as compared today where we can pay these higher prices.
I know it is for me, as I grew up some.

If you are making $35 a month, as many were back in those days, those prices are tough.
