My friend has an older Colt 1911 .45 ACP he wants to sell. Based on the serial number, the gun appears to be manufactured in 1918. Can anyone tell me what it is worth? Here are some pics:

That is beautiful. Honestly, I don't know, and in this instance, would send the pic's, s/n and info to Colt directly and let them place a value on it, and they would be able to tell you about the gun's history as well.

Awesome military firearm there! Agree with Janie that you should contact Colt or take it to a good truthful gun shop to have it looked at.

My guess solely on looks would be 1000-3000$ The grips are WW2 not WW1 which leads me to the assumption that it was sent to the arsenal to be serviced for WW2. Which was very common. Google arsenal markings for the 1911 WW1 to WW2 and you will be able to see what has been done from the markings in certain spots. I would suggest contacting Colt as well because for a nominal fee they will send an official letter stating when and where it went as far as records can find. Very nice pistol, I have one from the same year.

I appreciate the info everyone provided. I will let my friend know what was said and that it looks as though it would be best to contact colt directly. Here's a couple of more pics. Thanks.
