I have a dilemma. I have the chance to buy 2 Colt 1911s in .45acp, but only cash for one, so need your opinions quickly on which one you would buy if you were me. Here is the rundown:
(1) WWI Era 1911: (SN 4568xx) “US Army” and “United States Property”, Wood grips, 1 unmarked magazine, some pitting on slide.
(2) WWII Era 1911A1: (SN 8602xx) “US Army” and “United States Property”, Wood grips, Elliason rear adjustable target sight, Stippled front strap, 1 magazine.
Need to buy before someone else does, so please be speedy if possible. Already have an Argentine 1911 to shoot at range, so this new one is for collection and rarely for shooting. Also posted on a few other sites. Thanks.

Based on your descriptions, I would go with the 1911 over the 1911A1.

I like collecting guns.I love the classic, plain-Jane looking 1911's. It's on my wish list for sure.
