i went to get a used 45 for service pistol.stock 1911,found one 1941 national match colt 1911 45 acp.great shape tight,got home took it apart and it has a grip fire pin safety.no clue ,started looking up info. it has a swartz fire pin safety.seems like this is a rare gun,so do you think i should shoot it,or save it. also i shot 5 rds thru gun 185gr swc.25 yds all holes touched each other so it shoots well.but it didnt feed bullets smoothly,would 185 gr fmj hp feed better. thanks for any info, tyro

Shoot it!! My 2 Colt's were manufactured in 1934 and are consective numbered. They lost their collector value when they were turned into Bullseye guns when my Dad built them in the early 60's. There is no price I could place on them but enjoy shooting them and am proud when people ask me about them.

Neat pistol, you might post this on the Colt forum, on that forum there are a lot of very knowledgeable people in regards to that era of 1911. If it was me I would shoot it but I might be very wrong.
