A nice used find: SA 1911A1 WWII Login/Join

Saw this in my LGS a couple of weeks ago. I didn't buy it then. I had one back in the '80s and I sold it. Always regretted it. So a few days ago I ask my LGS guy if he still had it and he did, so he put it away for me and I picked it up today.

The box is a little rough. And there is a hairline mark where the slide stop goes in, and two minor superficial rust sots on the frame, all visible in the pictures. Otherwise, this pistol has no wear on it at all. Not sure it was ever fired much. It was certainly stored in the box.

I sprayed it down with Ballistol and now it smells like the one I had in the '80s.

Wrong sub forum...

But that’s a nice pistol!

Very nice throwback...looks exactly like "my" 1943 Remington Rand. SA makes a good 1911, too... you're going to enjoy that gun!

It's a little different than the one I owned in the 80s. That one came in a blue and white cardboard box. And the thumb safety was just a little nub, like an original 1911. It also said .45 CAL on the slide. And Imbel Brazil wasn't on the gun anywhere. This new one of mine has the interlock on the mainspring housing. My pistol from the 80s didn't. Man, I missed that gun. This one is a reasonable replacement. I've owned other SA 1911-A1s, but none, to me, are like the WWII models.

I think it's a fortunate man that owns such a pistol!
