Manufactured in the mid-1970s, this is one of only 47-57 Colt Pony pistols ever produced. The parts for these pistols were produced by Firearms International Corp. on leftover machinery from the Colt Cub project, with the parts being subsequently sent to Colt for finishing and assembly. Colt scrapped the project early on and is said to have retained 10 or 11 of the pistols for Colt executives, returning the remainder to F.I.C. for sale. The left side of the slide is marked "COLT PONY/CALIBER .380 AUTOMATIC" followed by a Rampant Colt and the right side is marked with the Colt address, also with a Rampant Colt. Fitted with blade and adjustable notch sights, checkered grips with Colt medallions, and a lanyard ring stud on the butt. Includes original Colt "woodgrain" box. Provenance: The Dr. Robert Azar Collection

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 99% plus original blue with minimal handling marks and an attractive plum coloration on the frame. Grips are also excellent with sharp checkering. Mechanically excellent. Box is very good with storage and handling marks and wear on the corners.
