Got my first 1911 finally
Got a Colt MK IV/Series 80 Officer's ACP stainless in 45 auto caliber today. In pretty decent condition. Did not have a chance to the range yet. Just had it cleaned and lubed. A couple questions though.
1. Not able to ID the SN according to the web site that suppose to have all SNs, so here is the SN: SF11407. Anybody knows when it's manufactured?
2. This is the first gun I have with grip safety. I assumed that if you did not touch the safety, the gun should not be functioning. But it appeared to me that the hammer will drop even the grip safety was left along. In other words, the hammer will drop when the trigger was pulled, it does not matter if the grip safety is on or off. Is this normal? Anything I should worry about?
