serial #171773, 45 ACP / AR, 5 1/2" barrel with excellent bore. This old war horse has been arsenal reworked and marked by Augusta Arsenal and bears U.S. Army rack number "20114". The metal surfaces have about 80% arsenal grade Parkerized finish that has faded to a light gray with the grip frame worn to a mix of pewter and brown, moderate edge wear, freckling and various handling marks. The smooth factory walnut grips are numbered to another gun and rate about very good as lightly refurbished showing an arsenal quality repair to a chip on the toe of the left panel in addition to scattered handling marks. The sideplate is a replacement numbered to another gun but everything appears to function mechanically. The crane lock screw has been replaced with a standard screw which seems to retain the crane lock, the screw heads have light slot damage and the lanyard loop is present. There is a clear "AA" stamp on the left frame above the triggerguard and Colonel Gilbert H. Stewart's inspection mark is fairly crisp. The gun includes a single full moon clip. This is another variation of the timeless 1917 revolver for the military collector. (88807-2) {C&R} (600/800) SOLD FOR $575.00
