IN 92% FACTORY  ORIGINAL CONDITION WE HAVE A NICE EXAMPLE OF A VERY HARD TO FIND EARLY  1914 PRODUCTION  COLT 1911 US ARMY PISTOL.  THIS IS A FANTASTIC FIND FOR OUR PENNSYLVANIA CLIENTS AS THIS PISTOL WAS ONE OF ONLY 1300 SENT TO BRIG GENERAL THOMAS J STEWART, HARRISBURG, PA FOR THE NATIONAL GUARD OF THAT STATE ON APRIL 23, 1914. . ALMOST CERTAINLY THIS PISTOL SAW ACTION IN WW1 WITH THE PA  GUARD UNITS THAT WENT INTO THE REGULAR ARMY. THE GUN IS 100% CORRECT INCLUDING THE VERY HARD TO FIND ORIGINAL H P MARKED BARREL WITH AN EXCELLENT BORE AND THE CORRECT LANYARD LOOP 2 TONE MAGAZINE.   ALTHOUGH NOT A MINT STUNNER THIS IS A VERY ATTRACTIVE HONEST PISTOL IN A CONDITION THAT HAS A LOT OF ATTRACTION.  IT REALLY LOOKS LIKE IT WAS THERE AND DID IT…………IN 2 WORLD WARS!  IT HAS A LOT OF ROMANTIC APPEAL EVEN TO ME. THESE EARLY PISTOLS ARE VERY TOUGH TO FIND IN THIS FINE CONDITION AS MOST OF THEM SAW CONTINUOUS HEAVY USE RIGHT THROUGH 2 WORLD WARS. VERY ATTRACTIVELY PRICED WITH A COLT FACTORY LETTER, THIS PISTOL WAS CARRIED BY THE BOYS OF THE KEYSTONE STATE IN THE MAELSTROM OF TWO WORLD WARS.
