Just wondering are these of any value. Deactivated Colt M1911 .45.
I have two of them in storage for years now. Trying to get rid of them without having to hand them in to my local Garda Station, so thought, maybe there might be a buyer for them. How much do these usually go for?

I`m not too sure what the market for deacts is like in Ireland, or what the legislation is regarding them is. But I imagine that they are worth a considerable amount more than the two posters above me have offered for them. If you visit some of the websites that deal in deactivated weapons, you should be able to get a good price indication there.

£250 for the pair would be my offer.
You may get more if you advertise them in the for sale section.

Someone told me they are just replicas "with moving mechanical parts". However, they don`t have the word "Japan" on them like the replicas are meant to have. So I`m presuming they are just replicas.

The term that was used was "blank firer". Will take pics of the inside later.

They look like RMI / MGC Colt 1911 A1 modelgun replicas to me Connor but would need better pics to be sure mate .
They usually have the word " Japan " or " MGC " inscribed somewhere tho, . Have you got any cartridges with them ?
They are nice replicas in good condition worth @ £75 each .
I have owned a few and they are one of the better 1911 A1 replicas being weighty and all metal .

They should also field strip just like the real 1911 -If not they may be the cheap and nasty Spanish copies which are best used for knocking nails in with !

They strip down all right. All metal and japan nowhere to be seen. Will check for MGC

Did you sell your guns ?
V interested in any modelguns replicas you have - could you please email me on :

Its a replica, you can tell by the componant in the top right hand corner of the stripped down photo, it is in place of a firing pin as would be on the real thing. If you still have them and sell them to someone in the UK make sure they are VCR exempt.

Still have one of the Colts, and still have the Ingram Mac 10 replica with silencer.
Never got around to selling them as I have no idea what a good price for them are.
