    Hello PG, Not enough info! Go to coolgunsite and see how original /collectable your M1911 is. Could be any where from $600 to 2000. M1911 and M1911A1s are becoming more and more collectable! BUT condition condition and parts originality/finish are paramount. After comparing your M1911 with the above site, you will have a base from which to ask about evaluation. Regards, Ray

    Hi PG, Sounds like a higher dollar collectable to me. $2000?. The best thing now would be to post a picture at: http://www.jouster.com/cgi-bin/pistol/pistol.pl. The guys there are (like here) friendly and very helpful. The .45 board is specialized and some of the posters are the foremost in the M1911 collecting field. Sounds like a winning item to me. Regards, Ray
