Here is a direct and faithful descendant of the first Models of 1911, made in the same factory with the same exacting labor methods to recapture the exact appearance of those early .45s. Finish is authentic vintage style matte streaked blue; slide is round top; patent dates, Colt Logo, Inspector's initials, serial number font, and Model designation to the slide stamping are all correct. Sights, hammer, slick mainspring housing with lanyard are all correct as well. The only departure from the originals appears to be the smooth blue steel trigger, a bit wider and without any serrations like the ones we've sold since the 1950s. Double Diamond grips are correct and faithful. Even the box, nox paper, and blue manual are all included within the blue Colt Custom Shop box and sleeve. Buyers of previous 01918 pistols should go to and check their serial numbers; any below # 3432WI should be returned to have its main safety updated. The specimen in the photo is a full 300 digits above that, 3700 range; and it has the newly configured safety mechanism. It comes to us from a distinguished Pennsylvania Collector near Allentown, and it is unfired and never loaded in its original box with all its papers. Its only surface detractions are faint frame contact on the forward bottom edge of the slide and on the edge of the hammer face. We rate it as Near Mint in Box, but photos ought to suffice for our shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Original World War One specimens often fetch upwards of $5,000 apiece. We're offering the exact 01918 in the photo, however, for only $ 1459.00. Not transferable to civilian residents of California, District of Colombia, or Massachusetts.

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.
