*** SOLD PENDING FUNDS ***
This a nice example of a Colt Model 1905 Automatic pistol. It was the direct predecessor to the Model 1911 with a total production of 6,100 from 1905 to 1911. The right side of the slide is marked "AUTOMATIC COLT / CALIBRE 45 RIMLESS SMOKELESS" in front of the ejection port. The left side of the slide is marked in two blocks: "PATENTED / APR. 20. 1897. SEPT. 9. 1902. DEC. 19. 1905" and "COLT'S PATENT FIRE ARMS MFG. CO. / HARTFORD CONN. U.S.A." with the circled Rampant Colt behind the serrations. The serial number is located on the left side of the frame above the trigger guard bow. The upper left trigger guard bow bears the Colt "VP" triangle proof. The late model 'square' hammer is found on this model and has the Colt case-hardened finish. The remainder of the gun is finished in the Colt high-polish charcoal blue, except for the trigger, extractor, grip screws and magazine release, which are nitre blue. The grips are the original checkered early walnut with the diamond pattern around the screws and the unmarked magazine is blue.
