In 1927 Colt manufactured 10,000 1911A1s for the Argentinean Army. This contract is unique in that it had its own serial number range starting at serial of: 1 to 10,000, and the pistols were marked in accordance with Argentine requirements. The only normal Colts markings are the standard left hand slide legend.
These “Modello 1927”, were made in Hartford, Connecticut by Colts, pistols should not be confused with pistols made in Argentina under license from Colts, and marked D.G.F.M.
This 45 has been Nickel plated with Gold accents. The nickel finish is still very nice, but the gold on parts such as trigger, mag release, and hammer are faded. The gun functions great and is in overall very nice condition.
