Introduced as a commercial pistol, the 1903 was adopted by the U.S. military after proving a commercial success and became the standard sidearm for General Officers during WWII and still issued into the 1970s. Although this pistols serial number falls in the middle of known General Officer pistols, it is not identified as such (570824, 570826, and 570830 all identified). Provenance: The Gus Cargile Collection
Very fine, retains 85% of the original parkerized finish with some light edge wear and some light thinning on the grip straps. The grips are very good as refinished and sanded smooth with some scattered light handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
