My father's combat knife. He was in the first wave ashore at Green Beach at the south of France about a month after D-Day. He decorated the handle with red insulated wire and did the same around the periphery of the sheath and held it in place with wrapped copper wire. I guess when you're sitting around waiting to go into battle, you do something to keep yourself occupied and not thinking of what's coming.

^^^^ Those 1911s are amazing. I also love that ammo crate, freaking awesome. And too bad we can't own trench knives in CA

I also just realized tinypic is finally toast. I will have to go back and fix hundreds of posts here, just started with this one - ugh....

I got this one from CMP. Skyhawk, you helped me identify it to be a 1918 pre-A1 Colt frame with a Rem Rand slide. Here it is next to my 1918 DWM P08.

Thank you brother. Its a refinish for sure. The pony is barely visible anymore, but its all matching numbers, and the property markings are very clear. The action is nice and smooth and it has a wonderful trigger. I found it at Cabellas gun library and got it for a really good price. I shoot it regularly.

Where can I get one of those old 1911s that say government property (a real one not a replica)? Are they extremely expensive?

They pretty much are where you find them and yes, they tend to be rather pricey.

My great grandfathers 1942 Remington Rand 1911.

He was a fighter pilot in ww1 and ww2. And an aviation advisor for the pentagon during Korea.





I also have an 1842 H Ashton black powder pistol issued in the civil war. It is still operational.

OK here is another. This is a 1943 Rem Rand with a post-war (1950s) Colt military contract "hard" slide. This one came to me from the CMP, in the exact configuration and condition it was in when discharged by the US Army. This discharge was authorized by the 'National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018’ Section 1091.

It has been arsenal rebuilt at Springfield Armory (the real one) and most recently at Anniston Army Depot (in May 1976)

It's a testament to what our industrial base is capable of doing in time of need (war, in this case). Man, if those guns could talk....
