Manufactured in 1942 with "U.S. PROPERTY" mark on the right side of the frame. Introduced as a commercial pistol, the 1903 was adopted by the U.S. military after proving a commercial success and became the standard sidearm for general officers during World War II and continued to be issued into the 1970s. Although this pistol's serial number falls in the middle of known general officer pistols, it is not identified as such. Includes the correct Kraft style box hand numbered to the gun, manual, and two extra magazines.
Excellent, retains 99% plus of the original parkerized finish with only the slightest handling marks overall. The grips are also excellent with only the slightest handling marks and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. The box is very fine with some mild exterior storage wear.
