Delivered between 28 May 1909 and 13 September 1911, the Model 1909 revolvers were almost entirely shipped to the Philippines. Blade front and notch rear sights with the two line Hartford address and patent dates (1884, 1900, 1905) on top of the barrel, "COLT D.A. 45" on the left side and "UNITED STATES PROPERTY" on the underside. The left side of the frame has the Rampant Colt trademark surrounded by a stylized "C", with "R.A.C." inspector initials and "F.B." on the right side. The butt is marked "U.S./ ARMY/ MODEL/ 1909" ahead of the lanyard loop and "No. 35907" behind it. Smooth two piece walnut grips with "R.A.C." stamped on the bottoms. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection
Excellent. The revolver retains 95% plus of the bright original high polish finish with handling and storage marks. The barrel has areas of flaking on the top and left side and a ding on the left side towards the muzzle. The grips are very fine with handling and storage marks. Mechanically excellent.
