Here's an interesting and rather rare pistol for collectors of Colt automatics. This is a post-WW2 Goverment Model .45 that was manufactured in 1946. During this period immediately following the war, Colt had on hand some surplus components left over from the war-time government contracts. Rather than dispose of these parts, Colt utilized them in the constuction of commercial pistols. This is one of these hard to find guns. Notice the "double rollmark". On the left side of the slide is the standard military style rollmark as seen on the 1911A1. On right side however is the post-war commercial style rollmarking as seen on the non-military pistols. Also the military "P" stamped on the top of the slide. This pistol also utilizes other surplus military parts such as the grips, lanyard loop mainspring, military barrel, etc. It also has a couiple prewar commercial parts, like the trigger and hammer. Pretty cool! According to Clawson, this was made between October 1946 to January 1947. This pistol is all original and in excellent condition. It retains about 95%+ of the original finish. With perhaps fewer than 2000 of these pistols made, this can be considered one of the rarest of the Colt .45 autos. Make offer. Shipping $35 overnight. FFL or C & R.
