Description:

Manufactured in 1909, this is one of only 6,210 Colt "Military Model of 1905" pistols manufactured over a period of six years. These pistols were the first production Colt automatic chambered for the legendary .45 ACP cartridge. The left side of the slide is marked with the two-line, two-block patent dates and address, with the circled Rampant Colt behind the serrations. The left side of the slide is marked "AUTOMATIC COLT/CALIBRE 45 RIMLESS SMOKELESS". The left side of the frame is marked with the serial number, and the left of the trigger guard has a "VP" proof and "6". It has rounded blade front and rounded top notch rear sights and the later spur-type checkered hammer. It is fitted with a pair of diamond pattern checkered grips and an unmarked full blue magazine. Provenance: The Mel Raucher Collection

Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 60% plus of the original blue finish with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey-brown patina, primarily on the grip straps and the edges in the form of holster type wear. The grips are also very fine with a few scattered light handling marks and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
