Up for sale here is a Colt 1911 A1, blue, 45acp, mfg'd in 1931. This gun rates better than 90%... ORIGINAL unaltered condition (we grade tough- you will not be disappointed). This gun has an extra wide front sight, and "U" notched, fixed-rear sight. As you can see on the Colt letter, It has been "Targeted" by Colt factory; and part of a 30 gun shipment to Camp Perry OH for the National Match competitions.
So this gun was ordered by Camp Perry (the National Matches) just one year before Colt introduced the "National Match" model in 1932. These features are the same as the other prewar NM. The wide front sight is totally consistent with the National Matches of the same vintage (we have a few to compare- they are the same). So this is basically a Pre-"National Match" National Match auto.
How many of these rare guns still exist- and in this condition? In a way, I consider this pistol more authentic than a regular pre-war Nat'l Match, as it was actually shipped to & used in the National Matches!!! This gun has an historical pedigree that no ordinary NM has.
