    You bet. Plus it shoots good. Thinking the Ithaca might have been assigned to the Pacific because it seemed at home in today's hot, humid (and rainy!) weather. Prpbably Guadacanal, I can imagine.

    Load was a mouse flatulance 3.3 gr Clays with my 200gr HG68.

    I think I am really going to enjoy this ol' gal an awful lot.

    I think that was Pattons issued 1911. He always carried his 6 shooters, probably explains why there's very little wear.
    I thought Ithaca was a rare bird but researching they were equal to I think Colt with 400,000 made. Singer made a bunch too, more than I recalled. That's a beauty.

    Singer made some of the best ones and are highly collectible but everybody was making Government contract 1911 pistols during the war…..Remington Rand, not the gun company but the typewriter manufacturer also made some very nice, collectible pistols, seems they both had better equipment to build small tight tolerance equipment with…….
    The Federal Government can not give anyone a single penny that it has not taken away from someone else….
