serial #49909-S, 22 LR, 6" barrel with an excellent bore. This lovely 1949 made pistol retains beautiful condition and has been lightly customized on its interior. The metal surfaces retain about 99% original blue with slight edge wear, a few scratches and other light handling wear marks. The checkered thumb rest "Coltwood" synthetic factory grips with Colt logo rate excellent. The backstrap is fitted with the small "Coltwood" factory grip adapter that also rates excellent. The pistol features a Patridge front sight, Coltmaster rear sight and a host of custom work performed by gunsmith Thomas Pratt. The list is extensive but a few include smoothing of internal parts and channels they move in, remove excess slack from the trigger and reduce pull to 2.5 pounds, smoothing and fitting to ease disassembly, a few parts were replaced with hand fitted select originals and the feed ramp polished, to name just a few. It includes a hinged factory brown box with green interior that is correctly end labeled to this second series gun but the usual hand applied serial number is no longer visible. Overall, the box rates very good plus with little wear but torn corners on the cover and light repair to the end label. Also included is a single Colt marked magazine, the large factory grip adapter, bristle bore brush, test target serial numbered to the gun, manual, "Learning to Hit with a Handgun" pamphlet by Emmett E. Jones and a three-page list of services performed to the pistol by Thomas Pratt of Colt Woodsman Custom Pistolsmithing in August, 2017. This gun retains wonderful condition with insides smoothed up and improved and is a treasured find for the Woodsman collector. (88904-9) {C&R} (1200/1800) SOLD FOR $2,300.00
