6/27/18 - This is a US Army issued Colt M1911A1 from early in 1944. The pistol is fully original and correct with about 94-95% original finish. There is edge and slide wear on the left side, and some finish loss on the underside of the frame. The right side of the slide also shows some oxidation throughout. Proper inspectors marks throughout, and proper Colt barrel. Bore has some freckling in the grooves and shows a fair amount of use. Excellent grips. 'L' marked mag.
