serial #1757096, 45 ACP, 5" barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces on this government arsenal-refurbished pistol retain 100% dark gray-green parkerizing, they have an overall coating of light, moderate, and in some cases heavy, cosmoline. The Keyes Fibre Company grips rate about excellent. The pistol comes in its arsenal Kraft box as-removed from the heavy green wax paper wrap along with the very seldom encountered plastic weatherproof storage pouch. There is one magazine included in the gun and two additional seven round blued magazines, one with remnants of cosmoline and green wax paper wrap adhered to it, the other still as-wrapped from the arsenal; there is included a boar bristle bore brush as well. The function of the arm cannot be determined as the cosmoline has hardened with age and precludes movement of the slide and interior parts; there is no doubt the gun is as-new as arsenal refinished before being stored for the "next war". A prisitine example of a government arsenal refurbished 1911A1 Remington Rand pistol. (38211-26) {C&R} (2000/4000) SOLD FOR $2,530.00
