Nice looking pistol! Hard to tell from the pic but the finish looks really good for a 1918 pistol. Was it an arsenal rebuild?

This 1911 is not an arsenal rebuild. All the local experts that have seen have been very impressed. A friend of mine has one that has a serial number very close to mine. We took off his grips today and under one of them the finish was exactly like my whole pistol.
