2/24/21 - This is a mint example of an Essex / Colt Government Model 1911, chambered in .45 ACP. The frame was made by Essex and it has a Colt slide. Overall, the gun is in mint condition with no obvious signs of wear except for a couple of very tiny dings on the slide. The bore is excellent - shiny with strong rifling. The gun comes with a Springfield hard case, Springfield 1911A1 manual, and one proper magazine. Excellent wood grips.
