7/8/19 - This is a near-mint Colt 1911A1 that was manufactured in 1943, after the change was made to stop serializing the slides. The gun is all original and correct with 99% parkerized finish remaining. There are a couple minor scuff marks and a hint of high edge wear. Proper Colt barrel with small 'F' under the lug. Strong, shiny bore. Excellent grips. 'S' marked magazine.
