The comments about the series got my interest up so I looked up my old Government Model M1911A1's serial number. The SN indicates it was built in 1968. My father bought this pistol for me new when I was about 17. Kept it all these years and only fired about 200 rounds through it. Do these pistols have a greater value than newer guns of the same model? Decided to get back into pistol shooting so I ordered a NIB Kimber Custom Stainless Target last week. Thanks for any info.
