serial #271531, 45 ACP, 5" High Standard barrel with an excellent bore. This late war 1918-made pistol remains in fine condition with about 90 - 95% original blue exhibiting high edge wear, fine scratches, assembly marks and the occasional tiny ding and oxidation blemish. The double diamond checkered walnut factory grips rate very good to excellent with light diamond point wear, heaviest near the butt, and a few other handling marks. The slide is serial numbered to the gun on the bottom and the markings remain crisp overall including Lt. Col. John M. Gilbert's inspection mark on the frame. The pistol includes an unmarked two-tone magazine with pinned base. Overall, a nice condition Government Model pistol for the martial or Colt collector. (88569-20) {C&R}[Calhoun L.H.
