Colt 1911 U.S. Army with Savage Slide. Mfg.  1918  Guns > Pistols > Colt Automatic Pistols (1911 & Var)
Description: This is a 1918 Colt U.S. Army pistol with a very rare Savage 1911 slide. A.J. Savage Munitions of San Diego Ca. Had a contract to manufacture 1911 for the U.S. Government but never actually produced any completed guns. They did however complete several thousand slides that were sold to the government , which in turn used them as replacement parts when guns were sent to the armory to be refurbished. The guns and the slides at that point would be parkarized. This colt however does not have any arsenal markings and the gun and slide retain there original finish. It is believed that some slides made it to the Colt production line and were installed. The history of this slide is still being debated, there is no paper trail for these slides and the original factory has since burned down. Great piece of history.
