This is an Argentine "product improved" version of the Colt 1911A1. In this version the Argentines disposed of the grip safety and changed the trigger mechanism to make a more cost effective and user friendly? pistol. This particular unit looks to have been reparked and was made for the Argentine "Gendarmerie Nacional." Numbers match and priced to sell; markings sharp and in good to vg condition. Can be bought as a package deal with my other listed Colt Systema 1927 if so inclined. FFL necessary unless FTF in Central Florida.
