  • Colt U.S. 1911A1 Transitional .45 ACP caliber pistol. Very rare and desirable transitional 1911A1, made in 1924 in the first batch of the transitional .45’s. This first lot of guns was numbered 700,001 to 710,000 and this gun is numbered 700,946, making it a very early example. This gun was originally blued but has been through the arsenal and had a Parkerized finish applied and some later military parts added. The barrel is marked “Colt .45 Auto” with “P” proof on the lug, which is correct for the second batch of transitional guns made in 1936. The bore is excellent and the gun is in excellent overall condition. A rare and collectible military Colt .45 automatic.

  • Colt 1911 .45ACP caliber pistol.
U.S. Army issue 1911 model. Shipped approximately May of 1918 most likely to Springfield Armory. This gun was made at a period when the milling marks in the metal became more prominent and the finish changed to black. NOTE: Blackening the pistol required refinishing, so the finish looks good but is refinished. Gun shows some scattered light pits under the refinished blue. Grips show wear and are probably original to this gun. Further information on these guns is in the 319XXX range and is on page 195 of Clawsone book, “Colt 45 service pistols 1911 and 1911A,” To clarify the finish, this gun was not refinished by the arsenal but by a collector or shooter later on.
