    This is a new-to-me 1939 with almost perfect bluing and excellent condition stock. The trigger on this thing is amazing. It's a match grade trigger. And the strait-pull action is super smooth and a joy to shoot. Picked mine up from Simpson LTD for a reasonable price. The surplus GP-11 isn't readily and cheaply available like it is used to be, unfortunately, but there is some indication that more will be coming into the country maybe next year. I think Kris/Edelweiss pretty much locked up the supply.

    Does a WWI 1911 made in early 1918 count as a milsurp?

    Decent K31s run from $500-$700 these days although I'm sure you can find a better deal if you look around. Ones with Diopter sights as used for competition shooting after their military service will run over $1,000. Like a lot of old milsurp guns, they used to be hard to give away. I think the secret on the K31 is getting out, as these are very finely produced rifles designed for marksmen.

    Itís been reblued but was made in 1918.

    Holster was my Great Uncleís that he carried when wounded in Okinawa near Sugar Loaf Hill. USMC 0331. Jap harassing artillery fires, hand grenade and bonsai charges at night wounded him and seven others; 15 total Marine casualties but his company killed 35 Japanese in two days

    Nice looking 1911. Where they originally blued or parked in 1918? Have you had this for a while? Vintage 1911s like that are getting pretty pricey these days

    This was the original finish on the early 1911s. The one below is the same year and very close in S/N to mine. Had it a few years, shot it with a full power load of 230gr ball on its 100th birthday (July 4, 2018 was close enough for me)

    Having been reblued, itís definitely lost value though. Fortunately I do have a few very functional 19200 cage code vintage magazines for it.

    After S/N 300,000, it changed to a darker finish from what Iíve read
