Thanks for the reply’s everyone. I cleaned it and not too aggressively, just got some of the surface rust off. I pulled out the firing pin and spring and cleaned the gunk out of it. I do want shoot it but am a bit nervous to do so. If I do, I’ll take everyone’s advice and get new Springs and keep the old ones. I also get another magazine and not use the one I have due to its value. I believe it is all original, according to my research on that era of pistol. The bluing on the hammer and trigger is a beautiful cobalt blue. This is my first 1911 and I am hooked! I do reload was thinking of downloading some ammo to shoot out of it. I have a bad habit of shooting all the firearms I have and most of them are old, well older than me. This would be oldest shooter if I do shoot it. I feel very honored to have inherited this beautiful pistol.
