The Future Of The “Real 1911?”

Someone dropped by looking for “production plans for the real 1911.”

By real I assume he means a Connecticut produced Clt 1911. Colt has filed for bankruptcy, and is trying to auction assets later this year, preferably some time in August.

I assume there will be a purchaser who will move Colt’s assets to a plant in a gun friendly State and continue to manufacture Colt marked 1911 pattern handguns, and Colt’s extensive line of other firearms. Other than that assumption, I have absolutely no information.

Nor can I say that a 1911 marked Colt’s, El Camp Texas would qualify as a “real 1911 or not. New in box and NRA mint Colt firearms are likely to see a sharp appreciation in value. Those who have them should hang on to them.
