Colt 1911 black army  Guns > Pistols > Colt Automatic Pistols (1911 & Var)
Description: This is a very nice early 1918 black army Colt (serial # 302607). It is one of the last that has the JMG inspection initials and not just the eagle head. The finish is original with only a small amount of the fading that is typical of the “black army” pistols and not the brushed blue that so many people claim is original. The slide lock and safety have the milling cuts under the tabs as they should. The barrel is the correct Colt type 4 and the bore has good shine and sharp rifling with only a hint of use of corrosive ammo. It has the short grip safely and beavertail hammer. It has the correct “H” provisional acceptance marks on the back of the slide and top of the frame. The double diamond grips are in excellent shape with no cracks or chips and wear consistent with the rest of the gun. The magazine is the proper WWI two tone contractor mag with an “A” for American Pin Co. and the base is pinned in place. The rear sight has the “U” shaped sighting notch as is correct. All lettering and stamping is sharp and correct with no evidence of buffing or polishing. Over all this is an all correct WWI 1911 with no evidence of rework or tampering and seems to have been well cared for over the almost 90 years of life. An FFL is required for shipment and a C&R license is acceptable if legal in your area. Shipping will be $30 UPS insured to the lower 48. Payment by certified funds or money order please. If you have any other questions please email and I will try to answer.
