This Colt was produced in 1943. The pistol’s serial number is 1184503. It has the standard 5 inch barrel chambered for the 45 A.C.P. government cartridge. The barrel is a correct Colt barrel for this pistol. The bore is bright with sharp lands. The barrel has been cleaned by the ejection port. The rest of the barrel has all of the original bluing. The slide is not serial numbered. Colt stopped serial numbering the slides at this time. The hammer is the correct early style wide spur hammer. The original military finish on this pistol would rate a 95% overall condition. The plastic grips do show some service wear. There is no damage to the original grips. The magazine is a correct World War 2 issued magazine. This is a honest service used Colt that would be a fine addition to any military collection!

For those folks that do not know me yet, I’m very hard of hearing on the phone. Therefore when you would call me, I will pick up the phone and tell you that I will call you right back. I have caller ID just so that you know, the reason for that is I cannot use a regular phone. I have to switch over to what is called a voice carry over phone. When I call you back you will hear my voice in our conversation, an operator will type your conversation to me on my phone view screen. With me reading what you are saying to me saves me a lot of confusion for me mishearing words.
I do want to talk to you and answer your questions without mistakes or miscommunications. This system works pretty good, so please be willing to be patient with my hearing loss.
My wife Marcia has fine hearing on the phone and is quite knowledgeable about firearms and is very able to help you over the phone.
