This Colt was produced in 1947. The pistol’s serial number is 50454. This is a second year production of the post war 38 Super production. This Colt has the correct “Fat” barrel. These barrels were produced using the 45 A.C.P. barrel blanks. The slimmer style barrels came out latter in production. Those slimmer barrels then became the standard style. These “Fat’ barrels were used for only a short time. This barrel is in very fine condition with a bright minty looking bore. This Colt has the “Pony” grips installed. These grips were used interchangeably with left over World War 2 grips until they were used up. The “Pony” grips were then used until they were phased out with another style of grips. These “Pony” grips were known to shrink with age. These grips show typical very light shrinkage around the screw holes. The slide has the high polish sides. The slide fits snug on the frame rails. The bluing is strong with very little wear. The frame bluing shows almost no loss. This pistol would rate a 97% or better condition. The magazine is the correct early style Post War magazine. This pistol shows light shooting and handling. This is a well cared for Colt!

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.
