3/22/18 - This is a beautiful 1930 production Colt model 1903 pistol with the original box numbered to the gun. The pistol has a beautiful Colt blued finish throughout and is like new condition except for a few small blemishes. The top of the slide has some light speckling (shown in photos), there is a hint of edge wear near the muzzle, and there is a small blemish on the legend of the pistol. Otherwise the gun is gorgeous and would make a great addition to a Colt collection. The wood grips are excellent and the magazine is correct for the pistol. The original box is a little tattered, and the lid is missing a few edges, but the box is numbered to the pistol on the underside. There are also 2 manuals included. Guaranteed original.
