Al Capone's Pistols

Thought some would be interested.

I have nothing to do with this video.

There is quite a bit of doubt about those guns being Capone's, especially the 1911 with target sights. The 1903 Colt appears to have wood Micarta grips, which would not be factory, and made much later than the gun.
