Colt 1917 .45 ACP Revolver VG GHS Military Marked  Guns > Pistols > Colt Double Action Revolvers- Pre-1945
Description: While we only have Wilson’s small serialization book, we believe that this US Army Model 1917, serial number 121xx, was manufactured and issued early in World War I, then re-issued under Colonel Stewart during the Second Worl War. This revolver has a nice even brownish gray patina on about 60 percent of its surface, with strong blue residuals on the remainder. Light and infrequent external pitting affects no more than 10 percent of its surface by our estimate, mostly concentrated atop the frame topstrap. Grips are replacement, of course, but appear to be Colt production from the 1960s or 1970s. Note the chip beginning at the top rear of the left panel. Cylinder chambers are Very Good, with light pitting in each chamber forward of the case area. Barrel bore is Very Good to Excellent, with no conspicuous pitting or sign of any to our inspection. Mechanism and timing are Very Good; Colts time on the trigger break anyway. Action is quite tight and stiff – we do not believe this revolver has been fired very much. We grade the revolver as Very Good, even though the finish may not quite rate that much on a strict grading basis. It has much to commend it with its tight mechanical condition, original Government markings, and well preserved military finish and refinish. We’re offering it for only $ 850.00.

Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony. GA Pay buyers are NOT charged until we confirm we have the item and are ready to ship it. The same thing is true for phone-in, fax-in, and mail-in payments. In this respect, and in several others, Guns America outshines all its competitors. This is the best firearms website there is, hands down.
