Beautiful example of a government issue Colt .45 as manufactured between May and Oct. 24, 1918. A generous 75%+/- original blued finish remains overall. Action and markings are as crisp as when the weapon was made. The clip is post-WW1 and likely 1935-45 era, but original military issue. Bore is near fine. If you ever wanted an honest and investment grade military Colt, this one is hard to top. Sale of this weapon requires legal transfer to a C&R or FFL dealer, no exceptions.
