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 "1945" 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 "WaA84". Matching serial numbers found on frame, slide, trigger, safety, mainspring housing, grip safety, and slide release. The barrel is an unmarked replacement with a tight fit. This pistol is pictured on page 118 of Karl Egil Hanevik's "KONGSBERG-COLTEN" book.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 85% plus original phosphate finish with scattered handling marks. The grips are also very fine with a few dings and overall crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
