Seems pretty vague about condition & price.
I'd love to get one but I'm not paying anything for some corroded lump.

At the very end of the article it stated, once the crates are opened they will be inspected and priced individually. So you'll probably know if it's a corroded lump or not.

This has been getting spooled up for a while. Bottom line is, I can go buy NEW guns for less money in many cases that are more reliable and better shooters. Call me when the M109s come available. I want a Ruger SS84L. Every 1911 I encountered from 87 through 91 was a worn out piece of shit. You might hit a brown mule in the ass at 10 paces, but I wouldn’t promise much more. I realize 1911 fans are coming unglued over this, but the legend of the GI 1911 is far more awesome than the reality.

I personally like the look of a 1911 and yhey are very acurate but i feel they are built to tight to be reliable when dirty. As a range gun i would like to own one but it would never be a carry piece on my hip.

That and im spoiled on how mu glocks and smith and wessons can be stripped for cleaning in 5 seconds flat

I had to laugh! This brought back a funny memory.

When I was in the Army back in '72 thru '75, I was a Vehicle Recovery Specialist, and so, I was issued a side-arm, the 1911!

When I went to the range at Ft. Carson, CO, to qualify with mine... from 25 ft., I NEVER once knew where my bullet went, so that I could make an adjustment that would get me to the target. Every adjustment I made, to try to hit the target failed. I made no holes in the silhouette. When I raised some dust in the earth, I lifted my weapon higher, but it would never hit the target.

After 3 magazines, I was congratulated... I had qualified! I never saw that handgun again!

Thank GOD!

Sounds like the last time I shot my dad’s WWII German P38 9mm. Not accurate. He took it off a SS trooper who “didn’t need it any more.”

There's some limitations on who can purchase one of the 1911's. It would have to be a really low price for me! Most will be non matching parts from several of the original manufactures. I understand ones made by Singer would be the most valuable. You will be imformed of the guns condition when you get selected to receive and will have a choice from several grades of differing values. I carry a Sig 1911 and it's a very fine weapon and accurate but it's light years ahead of the old GI 1911's.

The M1911 shoots pretty damn good in Call of Duty WWII game.
