Default April 18, 1917

I totally forgot to post this up yesterday.

This Colt 1911 was shipped on April 18, 1917 from Colt's Manufacturing to the Commanding Officer, Ordnance Depot, Manila, The Philippines. Part of a shipment of 1000 guns serial numbers 144051 to 145050.

Like GM4spds stunning 1911-A1, it shows a few polished small parts that contrast nicely with the brushed blue finish. The two tone magazine is correct for a Colt 1911 of this vintage.

Thumbs up

Gorgeous,that could be left up all month as far as I’m concerned. There is
something about COLT that says AMERICA out loud. Something too
really appreciate in an otherwise crazy world. Colt has really stood the
test of time. Nice Gilbert H. Stewart cartouche. Fine ORIGINAL example!

I don't feel jealousy often, but when you gentlemen post up these works of art, well, I feel jealous!

Gorgeous pieces of history!
