I learned something new to-night!

An old gun CAN be 'All Original' - underneath a re-finish.

Well, actually, I already knew that, but...just fun to chew on it some.

Reminds me of a story a good friend tells. Long before I met him he had decided that he would like to collect Lugers. At the next gun show he couldn't believe his good luck to find an "Officer's Luger". After purchasing his first Luger he started buying reference books, and then found out that nickel plated Lugers weren't issued to officers.

This Ithaca must have belonged to Gen. Patton!
Who else would carry a nickel 1911A1!?

Good Luck with that one!

:p
