6/27/23 - This is an original and correct Colt M1911A1 from 1942 with matching numbered slide. The pistol has proper proof marks and WB inspector mark on frame. The parkerized finish rates at about 70% with uniform thinning. Notable wear on the slide stop and grip safety, too. Excellent grips and bore with correct G proofed Colt barrel. "L" marked WW2 magazine.
