Question: I have a 1918 vintage 1911 that needs a new hammer.
Will this hammer from Brownell's fit the gun and work OK?

Are you trying to preserve its shooter grade or collectibility?
If its shooter, you can use anything really, but if you are looking for collectibility, I would be looking hard someone who may have one from a 1918 Colt they'd be willin to part with.

Just looking for something that looks "period correct." Not looking to restoring it to original at all.

That hammer should work just fine in your pistol and still look period correct...
