World War I era Colt Government Model frame manufactured in 1918- ser# 266 756. This gun was rebuilt by the Augusta Arsenal for re-issue during World War II as evidenced by the “A A” stamping on the left side of the frame above the trigger guard as well as the plastic WWII era stocks and Parkerized finish. Excluding the plastic stocks, the lower end of this gun is standard issue for the WWI era Model 1911- long trigger, wide spur hammer, flat smooth mainspring housing with lanyard loop, small tab thumb safety and short tang grip safety. The slide has serial number 784 958 stamped under the firing pin stop which indicates it was manufactured by Colt in 1942 (the firing pin and firing pin stop are included, they were removed for the picture of the slide serial #). The barrel is marked HS on the right lower lug and P on the left, indicating it is a High Standard barrel used by the August Arsenal for rebuilds. The entire pistol was Parkerized and fitted with Bakelite plastic grips after the Augusta Arsenal rebuit the gun with non matching slide/frame/barrel parts.

This pistol has some old corrosion on the slide over the dust cover and some old corrosion on the dust cover. The pistol has been stored in a dehumidified safe, continuously coated with oil.

Included is the pictured lanyard loop magazine that has a pinned base plate. The magazine appears to be appropriately aged to the pistol.
