That means your gun is not a colt its a Rock island armory brand not a colt. It is a 1911 style of gun made by rock island armory. You have nothing special. But those are a nicely built gun for the price.

Colts only factory at the time during 1914 as you say was in Hartford, Connecticut

That's actually really cool! I just got my hands on a colt 1911 from my dad, it was his first duty weapon when on patrol.

Was it hard to do?

I have a 700 in .243, it has that stupid drop down internal mag thing, you press a button and a door swings out of the bottom of the gun and the shells fall out. I'd love to have an actual detachable mag for it, with the way it is now, it only holds 4 rounds

They make conversion kits
http://www.cabelas.com/product/Kwik-...Kit/741478.uts

I just googled that and it was the first thing that popped up. I'm sure there's more

Thank you sir

Edit: Its not giving me the option to select a caliber, just the mag capacity. I could always just go to Cabelas anyways, its 1/2 hour from my house


Another edit: Just looked, saw that .243 isn't offered
