A man that I know has offered me his 1911 pistol that he inherited from his uncle. His uncle was a Marine in WWII. Based on the serial number it was made in 1919, Serial # 6233XX I do not know much about these pistols but in my opinion it is in excellent condition for a pistol that is close to 100 years old, no rust, no pitting very good rifling. The bluing has faded to a blue gray but it is still present without any bare spots due to holster wear. It also has the original holster. I am trying to determine a fair price.
