serial #25404, 45 ACP, 5'' Colt barrel with a fine bore which is mostly bright with very crisp rifling but with scattered light pitting. The metal surfaces on this handsome auto pistol retain about 97-98% original blue, the loss is due to some very light muzzle wear, sharp edge and contact point wear, the slide showing a number of minute scratches along its top surfaces with a tiny bit of very light surface oxidation around the front sight. The diamond checkered walnut grips rate excellent showing only a few very minor compressions or very lightly chipped points. The arm exhibits a lovely wartime polish and all of the markings are crisp. Included is a nice two tone lanyard loop magazine, the top bright section has toned to a plum patina. The barrel is correctly proofed with ''P/H'' atop the hood and the arm has the correct thin bladed front sight with a rounded u-notch rear sight. This pistol shipped in April 1913 along with 2499 of its brothers to the Commanding officer Springfield Armory. A handsome, high-condition early U.S. Model 1911 pistol.
