Saw this today. Would you buy? The barrel is 3", and under the barrel is stamped "United States Property"

That's not a great price, but it's a good one. It should have the model and serial numbers on the butt. I think there should also be a provision for a lanyard ring that has been removed.

If it's a 1917, it should be chambered for .45ACP and will need half-moon clips.

It's marked Government Property. Tell me where it is. I will go retrieve it for the Gummint. :biggrinjester:

I wouldn't buy it, but I would visit Carlson1's church to see it after the service.
