    Completely refinished and unmaching US&S 1911A1 !

    Who said that miracles do not happen?

    They do happen.

    Not long ago I saw a completely refinished and unmatching (wrong trigger, wrong MSH, unmatching slide stop lever, unmatching slide) US&S 1911A1.
    Well, against all odds it has been sold almost straight away for the equivalent amount of about 5,031.00 $

    Really sometimes I don't know what to think, apart that there must be a lot of uneducated people around with plenty of money to squander.

    Anything with a FLGR is fluff, if JMB didn't put it on the 1911 you don't need it.
    If you are going to collect, don't be 'drawn' to an example that is not original, nor correct. Instant gratification is more expensive than a good education.

    Perhaps it's the sum total of the parts, and someone that has more money than cares what to do with it? I've watched auctions that have gone out of hand with two stubborn old farmers both determined to own whatever misfit piece is at bid...and money was no issue.

    It was a direct sale at the gunshop.
