8/2/17 - This is a rare and excellent Norwegian Model 1914 with 97-98% of its original finish remaining. Colt licensed out production of the 1911 to Kongsberg Vaapenfabrik in Norway, who in 1945 produced less than 1,000 of this waffen variation according to Jan Still's book. This particular piece falls in the documented serial range of 29261-30523, where only ~30-50 have been reported. It has the original matte blue finish and stained birch grips, which have retained a good portion of the dark stain finish. The gun is 1945 dated, and it is stamped along the left side of the slide "11.25m/m AUT. PISTOL M/1914" followed by the serial number, above which is a crown/K inspector proof. To the left of this stamp is an E/WaA84 nazi proof, showing this gun was delivered to the German occupying forces in Norway. This pistol comes with an original Norwegian 1914 holster. Gun has some minor edge wear and handling scuffs throughout, but finish is largely beautiful. Bore is very nice, all parts are original and matching and gun comes with original loop magazine.
