Manufactured in 1944, during the height of World War II. The left side of the slide is marked with the two-line/two-block address separated by the Rampant Colt, "G.H.D." inspected frame with "P/VP" proof, matching "P" proofs on the frame and slide, and standard U.S. property and army nomenclature on the right of the frame. Fitted with blade and notch sights, checkered slide catch, thumb safety, and narrow hammer, long grip safety, and arched serrated mainspring housing with lanyard loop. Fitted with a full blue "S" marked magazine, full blue, "COLT 45 AUTO" marked barrel with "7" on the bottom and "P" on the lug, and reinforced checkered grips.
Excellent, retains 95% plus of the original parkerized finish with the balance having thinned to a smooth grey patina, primarily from cycling and takedown, and a few scattered light nicks and handling marks. The grips are also excellent with only the slightest handling marks and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
