    When I wanted a wall hanger shotgun…. I let a couple of my LGSs (where I was a regular customer) know… and one came up with one

    an old non-serviceable 1911 might be harder to come by… I’m not sure

    Go magnet fishing. I hear about people losing their guns in tragic boating accidents all the time. There is bound to be a boat load of them under water.

    I used to buy up old 'non-serviceable' doubles like that, and fix them, shoot them, then sell them...
    Don't know if it was profitable, had to make parts, fix wood, bore barrels & re-choke, tighten locks, re-cut sears, but it was fun.
    Personally, I don't believe in the No Win scenario, I mean 'Non-Serviceable' firearm.

    I think i know a spot where you can find a taurus pt22.

    But most boaters that use 1911's keep them on chains and are pretty particular about not loosing them.

    I question the concept of a “non-serviceable 1911”, unless from decades at sea bottom.

    The Old War Horse can be made to work if the parts are recognizable.

    Howdy all.
    I'm looking for a wall hanger/rusted shut 1911 for a display piece.
    Does anyone have or know where to find one?
    Something that's been on the bottom of a lake or in a barn for years/decades and has no real value?
    Thanks for any help you can provide.
    Find the cheapest 1911 possible, then make it non functional.

    Ask around at the local gun stores or place a WTB ad on Texasguntrader.com

    I meant a currently non-repaired one… one safe to leave out on display and wouldn't be able to shoot in its current condition

    yes, most can be repaired under just about any condition

    I removed the firing pins from my double that is hanging up… just In case

    I just liked the look of the external hammers and double trigger
