NEW INFORMATION, REDUCED, This Colt 1911-Ai was made between Jan.1 1941 and June 16 1942 and recieved it's final inspection at the Colt plant by Col.Waldemar S. Bromberg. It was then issued and received some rough usage that wore most of the gray parkerizing off the exterior. The slide and is a replacement and isn't numbered to the frame. Tt was returned to the Anniston Natrional Arms Depot, as shown by the A.N.A.D. stamp above the serial number (there are several other numbers stamped on the frame I can't decipher.) There it was cleaned and received a 1944 Colt barrel with a "Colt .45 Auto" stamped on the lower left side above the left lug with a P stamp and a 7 on the bottom of the barrel forward of the lugs. Also replaced was a early Colt mainspring housing and a Wright Engieering Co. hammer as supplied to Colt and Ithaca. It also has an unmarked WWII Colt blued magazine. From the pistol condition I'd guesss that it was then issued to a unit that did not go overseas. All of the listed data comes from and matches with Clawson's "Colt .45 Service Pistols". This is a chance to own a WWII Colt .45 that saw combat then was rebuilt to function perfectly. The exterior finish is 65% and the mechanics are 100%. AS such it falls into the "fair" catagory. Don't let this rarely marked (Anniston Arsenal) Military pistol slip through fingers.
