7/28/21 - This is a Colt 1911A1 that was made in 1941 for the US Army. Only ~35,000 produced in 1941, and this is an earlier and more desirable blued example. RS inspector mark on frame with P on slide, barrel and frame. The pistol appears all original as it left the factory, but the slide is serial 728537, while frame is 728542. We believe this to be a factory error of some kind, as the finish is congruent throughout and it seems quite unlikely that these two serials were paired together after the war. It comes with a Colt factory letter stating it was shipped in April of 1941 to Springfield Armory. It has a proper Colt barrel with large 'G' under lug but the bore is quite poor with pitting throughout. Excellent grips with minor handling wear.
