9/25/18 - This is an absolutely gorgeous Colt M1903 with minty, original blued finish and beautiful pearl grips with Colt medallion. The pistol will include a factory letter that has been ordered, stating it was shipped to Shapleigh Hardware Company in St Louis on the last day of 1938 as part of a 15 gun shipment. It is listed with blued finish and no mention of stocks. This pistol shows only the slightest edge wear, and would be very difficult to upgrade. The contrast between finish and grips is exquisite. Excellent bore and two-tone magazine. Note the left grip panel does have a minor stress crack from the screw. We've added a few pictures to show there's a light surface scratch and a small surface crack.
