Item No.: 9177 Price : SOLD
Item : U.S. COLT MODEL 1911 .45 PISTOL, 1915 MFG.
Description :
This is an original, Pre-WWI, U.S. Model 1911 Semi-Automatic Pistol manufactured by Colt in 1915. It is chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge. Adopted in 1911, the Model 1911 was America's standard sidearm in the First World War. Slightly modified and designated the Model 1911A1, it would serve through WWII and beyond. Many of the early Model 1911 pistols were arsenal upgraded to the M1911A1 configuration. Untouched examples are quite desirable. This pistol is an untouched, original Model 1911. It is in fine condition with about 80% of its original factory blued finish remaining. The majority of finish wear is on the grip straps which have developed a pewter gray patina. The upper frame and slide exhibit some light holster wear on the forward edges. The pistol has excellent mechanics and a fine bore. The checkered walnut grips are in fine condition as well. There is a tiny chip on the lower right hand screw diamond escutcheon. There is a small letter "A" stamped on the left lower escutcheon. The magazine has the lanyard loop. You can see a heat treatment line, but the treated portion is blued. This is a nice, honest, pre-WWI Model 1911. Stock no. 24610
