Description:

The Norwegian Kongsberg Model 1914 was a slightly modified copy of the U.S. Model 1911 pistol used by the Norwegian army. These pistols are nearly identical to the Colt Model 1911. This Model 1914 features a slide dated "1942" on the right side. The left side of the slide is marked with the later model 1914 caliber, model, and serial number marking with the Kongsberg Crest and lacks German Occupation markings. Inspection mark behind the rear sight. Matching serial numbers found on frame, slide, trigger, safety, mainspring housing, grip safety, barrel, and slide release. Includes an empty box of Raufoss 11.25mm ammunition

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 85% original phosphate finish with handling marks, dings, and a small spot of light pitting. Grips are very good with spots of softened checkering and dings. The slide lock/release does not engage on an empty magazine, but testing with other magazines resolved the issue. Otherwise, mechanically excellent. The ammunition box is very good with storage and handling marks.
