AUSTIN, Texas — In 1993, then-Pfc. Sean Lamphere received an M1911 pistol as part of the 11th Engineer Battalion at Fort Stewart in Georgia. It had a front sight that was cocked 10 degrees off center, and nearly all the bluing had worn off from what he assumed was decades of service.

He was right about that last part — the pistol was about 50 years old when he received it. https://www.stripes.com/own-a-piece-of-military-history-m1911s-available-for-purchase-1.529726
