    Won't that kill the "collector" value if you re-finish it?

    Smile Us&s

    John thats a great 1911 45 As you may know swissvale is a small little town just out side of Pittsburgh Pa. And US&S made all kind of Rail Road equipment. Back when PGH steel mills roared. With many mills along our three rivers. Now oniy a few are still running. But a lot of the PGH steel helped in the war effort.We are very proud of our town and its history. And we love ou Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl Champs! Once again Go Steelers Moses

    John:

    As between Bill Adair and Turnbull, I assume that you prefer Mr. Adair? I have an early 4 digit Commercial model that needs restoration in a very bad way and am trying to decide who to send her to.
