7/9/20 - This is an original Colt M1903 that was produced in 1923. It has about 95% of the original blue with muzzle wear on each side of the slide, and a bit of thinning along the high edges of the slide. While there is little actual bluing loss, there is obvious speckling and oxidation throughout. Grips are in excellent condition and original magazine is present. The bore has strong rifling but wasn't well cared for and does have some pitting throughout.
