1911 rigs

The 1911 rig is one I put together but WWI accessories; the 1911AI is from a captain who landed on Okinawa with the 10th Army XXIV Corp.. The only time he fired the pistol was to kill a snake. I met the gentleman at the gun store when he went back to pick up his money.The mag pouch is for a carbine.
Thanks for looking,
Joe

I hope that didn't include range and practice time...

Awesome Joe, thanks

I have that type of thing but the other way around! Mid WWII belt, Warren Leather goods holster, WWI ammo pouch and WWI Colt

In your first pic, what year is the M1911? 1914ish?

Chris, The 1911 was made in 1917 and shipped Jan3 1918 to Greesville Piers,NJ Ordance Depot No.6, A.E.F. France. one of 5000 sent to the commanding officer. This is kind a rare to have a 1911 that was shipped to a war zone and still stay relatively clean and not messed with after ninty five years.

Very nice guns. A 1911 or 1911A1 in its standard form is something I am missing from my collection. I have all of these 1911 variations, but no standard fixed sight 45 acp. My only regular size 1911 is a 38 special wadcutter, which is cool, but I long for the old "45".

FYI, That Mustang will have a modern partner this year. Colt is re-releasing the Mustang PocketLite. Parts are supposed to be interchangeable with the old models.
