Manufactured in the mid-1970s, this is one of less than 50 Colt Pony pistols ever produced. The parts for these pistols were produced by Firearms International Corp. on leftover machinery from the Colt Cub project, with the parts being subsequently sent to Colt for finishing and assembly. Colt scrapped the project early on and is said to have retained 10 or 11 of the pistols for Colt executives, returning the remainder to F.I.C. for sale. The left side of the slide is marked "COLT PONY/CALIBER .380 AUTOMATIC" followed by a Rampant Colt and the right side is marked with the Colt address, also with a Rampant Colt. Fitted with blade and adjustable notch sights. Provenance: The Bailey Brower, Jr. Collection, author of “Savage Pistols”
Excellent, retains 99% plus of the original blue finish with only the slightest handling marks and the frame showing a slight plum hue. The grips are also excellent with only the slightest handling marks and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
