IN 95% VERY SHARP CONDITION, WE HAVE A VERY RARE AND HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER COLT 1911A1 COMMERCIAL / MILITARY PISTOL.  THERE WERE APPROX 6500 COMMERCIAL 1911A1 PISTOLS ON HAND IN COLT’S STORAGE ROOM AT THE OUTBREAK OF WW2.  BEGINNING IN NOVEMBER, 1942 RUNNING INTO EARLY 1943, THESE PISTOLS WERE PULLED OFF THE SHELVES AND CONVERTED AND RENUMBERED TO MILITARY SPECIFICATIONS.  THIS INVOLVED REMOVING THE SCHWARTZ SAFETY AND RENUMBERING THE SLIDE AND FRAME IN THE MILITARY SERIAL RANGE THEN PARKERZING THE PISTOL.  THIS IS A VERY SHARP  EXAMPLE OF THIS UNIQUE AND RARE VARIANT.  THIS IS FULLY RIGGED OUT AS ISSUED AND VET BROUGHT BACK STILL WITH ALL THREE COLT MARKED MAGAZINES!  THESE PISTOLS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN POPULAR WITH COLT COLLECTORS WITH MINT EXAMPLES BRINGING VERY CLOSE TO $10,000.  THIS IS A REALLY SHARP EXAMPLE AND MUCH NICER THAN YOU USUALLY SEE.  FINDING THESE GUNS WITH ANY CONDITION IS VERY PROBLEMATIC BECAUSE ONLY 6500 WERE MADE AND THEY WENT STRAIGHT INTO COMBAT AND SAW HARD USE.  THIS IS A NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND VERY RARE 1911A1 VARIANT.
