    Sorry sir! It was given to me in good faith and I promised to use it for educational purposes.

    A World War One US Colt M1911, with magazine, holster and letter of provenance. Acquired this from an elderly lady. It was to be turned into the local police department and destroyed before she moved into a retirement community. I was able to contact her before it was turned in for destruction. Could have ended much more tragically if I had not been contacted by one of my best friends. Again, word of mouth can open really big doors that lead to fantastic finds!

    I'm looking for a Colt 1911 at the moment, even better with a good story, if you see what I mean

    Snow camo, over brown/green camo, over Luftwaffe. I got it covered in two layers of modern respray but luckily this practically washed off with acetone and didn't damage a thing underneath. Interior is untouched since the war, small flecks of winter paint on the leather and in the crown. She's a salty veteran and one of my very favourite pieces. AND a Quist, everybody loves a Quist

    I found a German Browning High Power Holster hidden in a secret drawer in a Chest after I bought it at auction. It came with ammunation but I turned it in to get destroyed.
    no gun though.

    Best regards, Patrick

    I rescued these from being skipped at work a few years ago........
    I also found a shoe box full of Victorian envelopes with stamps attached, some of which contained letters and one of which was from Lord Bath of Longleat.
