Very honest and 100% original Colt which was shipped in a batch of 300 pistols to the Canadian Government Dept. of Military and Defense on September 24, 1914. By serial number, it was manufactured the same year. This fine classic battle weapon retains the original two tone clip and 80%+/- original blue finish but has oxidation peppering as shown. The mechanics are as crisp as new and all markings are strong and clear. The bore is very good and the diamond pattern checkered grips are very nice, only showing light wear from storage and use. This weapon is accompanied by the Colt factory letter for documentation. FFL or C&R required for transfer…NO EXCEPTIONS.
