Item No.: 9345 Price : SOLD
Description :
This is an original, WWII, U.S. Model 1911A1 Pistol manufactured by Colt's Patent Firearms Manufacturing Company of Hartford, Conn. in 1943. It is chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge. Colt was the second largest producer of M1911A1 pistols during the war. This pistol is in very fine condition with about 95% of its original factory parkerized finish remaining. There is some holster wear at the muzzle area and on the high edges of the slide and frame ahead of the trigger guard. The heat treatment line is visible on the slide. The bore and mechanics are excellent, as are the grips. The barrel is of Colt manufacture, marked "Colt .45 Auto". The grips are "Coltwood" plastic with strengthening ribs, mold numbers, and reinforcing rings around the screw holes. The mainspring housing is checkered. The included magazine is an early two-tone type. It is in very good condition with some brown patina spotting. While the book shows this pistol being manufactured in 1943, records indicate that it was not shipped until February 25, 1944. It was part of a shipment of 1,750 pistols shipped to the Transportation Officer of Springfield Armory. This is a great, untouched Colt model 1911A1 pistol. Stock no. 25033
