Item No.: 9307 Price : $1,695.00
Item : U.S. COLT MODEL 1911 .45 PISTOL, 1917 MANUFACTURE
Description :
This is an original, WWI, U.S. Model 1911 Semi-Automatic Pistol manufactured by Colt in 1917. It is chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge. Adopted in 1911, the Model 1911 was America's standard sidearm in the First World War. Records indicate that this pistol was shipped to the Commanding Officer of Rock Island Arsenal on March 12, 1917. The pistol is in very good condition. It does not appear to be a rebuild, but several parts have been replaced over the years. The barrel is of WWII manufacture. The grips show little wear and may be replacements. The magazine is WWII era. The pistol retains about 40% of its original blued finish. The gun has overall finish wear with much of the metal having a gray patina with a speckling of brown. The pistol has excellent mechanics. The bore is in fine condition with just a couple of specks of surface rust. The grips are in very fine condition with sharp checkering. This is a warhorse that probably served in two World Wars. Stock no. 24893
