Description:

The Norwegian Kongsberg Model 1914 was a slightly modified copy of the U.S. Model 1911 pistol used by the Norwegian army. This Model 1914 features a slide dated "1922" on the right side. The left side of the slide is marked with the caliber, model, and serial number marking with the monogram of King Haakon and the Kongsberg Crest. Inspection mark below the date and behind the rear sight. Matching serial numbers found on slide, frame, trigger, hammer, safety, slide stop, mainspring housing, grip safety, ejector, magazine catch, barrel bushing, recoil spring guide, and recoil spring plunger.

Rating Definition:

Very fine as arsenal refurbished, retaining 85% arsenal phosphate finish with handling marks and muzzle wear. The replacement grips are very fine with a few minor dings and crisp checkering. Due to the hand fit nature and tight tolerances of these pistols, the slide stop does not engage on an empty magazine, but is otherwise mechanically excellent.
