10/10/18 - This is a near-mint Colt National Match, all original and correct, that was manufactured in 1961. The pistol retains 98% original blue with minor high edge and muzzle wear. There are also a couple of minor surface scratches on the slide. Sharp, excellent grips and the bore looks seldom used. Right panel does have a small gouge in it. The National Match M1911 Pistols are hand fitted and tuned for the National Match competitions which began at Caldwell, NJ and became the Camp Perry match. Among their numbers are some of the most beautiful and accurate pistols ever built.
