    Ithaca 1911 from 1943

    The owner of the LGS I use took in an Ithaca 1911 from 1943 in trade a couple of days ago. It's in good shape but appears to be an arsenal rebuild but the slide, barrel and frame at least all appear to be from Ithaca.
    The really sad part is that it is no longer parkerized, it was blued at some point in time so I know that kills a lot of it's value.
    Still nice to get my hands on it. Not sure yet what his plans are for it, he is still doing some research to try and determine it's value.

    Reblued, rearsenal'd, it's a shooter worth 5-600.00. There's no collector value left in that condition.

    I would have thought just a bit more, but you are probably right brownie.

    Might get someone to cough up 7 for it, but that's getting into the realm of real close to a new Colt.

    The total number of pistols produced by Ithaca was 335,466.
    Remington Rand had produced over 875,000 pistols
    Colt produced 628,808.

    With the lower number of Ithaca's, it may bring a tad more. But basically it's a shooter grade pistol. The metallurgy then isn't what it is today, look for peening on the barrel lugs/slide counterpart.

    Used to collect ww1/ww2 1911's for decades. If it hadn't been reblued, even a rearsenal'd piece in original condition would be over 1K.
