Be sure to send in your lottery style application to buy from the Government a used 1911 military pistol. And.. you have to send in that application between a September and an October date or it doesn't count. If you are a lucky winner you can buy one of three degrees of used pistols. The most used is $850.
Rack Grade $850. Pistol will exhibit rust, pitting, and wear on exterior surfaces and friction surfaces. Grips may be incomplete and exhibit cracks. Pistol requires minor work to return to issuable condition.
I'll not be sending in my application...unless I can get one guaranteed to have been used by Audie Murphy or carried by General Eisenhower.
Now if the US would just bring back boat loads of Korean war used M1's, 1911's , etc. Then we might have something to get excited about....and affordable.
