Item No.: 9273 Price : $5,250.00
Item : BRILLIANT 1917 COLT GOVERNMENT MODEL .45 PISTOL
Description :
This is an original Colt Government Model 1911 Commercial Pistol manufactured on February 2, 1917 and chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge. Manufactured from 1912-1925, this was the commercial version of the U.S. Model 1911 Pistol. They were generally the same as the military guns, but had a much better finish. They can be identified by their "C" prefix serial numbers. About 138,532 were produced. This pistol is in excellent condition. It retains 99% of its brilliant factory blued finish. The only blemishes are a small scratch where the slide stop dragged when the gun was once disassembled and a very, very tiny scuff on the left side of the slide right at the leading edge. The pistol has excellent mechanics and a perfect bore. The walnut, diamond escutcheon grips are excellent as well. Included is the original, two-tone magazine with lanyard loop in very fine to excellent condition and a Colt factory letter showing that the pistol was shipped in 1917 to Shoverling, Daly, & Gales in New York City. In 1930 Shoverling, Daly, & Gales would become Charles Daly, Inc. This is a spectacular, early Colt Government Model in incredible condition. Stock no. 24776
