IN 96% DECENT FACTORY ORIGINAL CONDITION WE HAVE A HARD TO FIND EXAMPLE OF AN EARLY 1919 PRODUCTION “BLACK ARMY”  COLT 1911.  THIS PISTOL IS 100% CORRECT EXACTLY AS IT LEFT COLTS.  IT IS TOWARDS THE END OF PRODUCTION BUT SEEMS TO HAVE SEEN SERVICE AS THE LEFT GRIP HAS A UNIT MARKING.    THEY ARE CALLED BLACK ARMY’S BECUASE OF THE WAR TIME EXPEDIENT BLACK OXIDE FINISH, WHICH WAS NOT AS DURABLE AS IT WAS HOPED.  ON MOST OF THESE BLACK ARMY PISTOLS THE FINISH HAS ALL FLAKED OFF OR TURNED TO A DULL BROWN COLOR.  THIS EXAMPLE  IS STILL IN A VERY ATTRACTIVE CONDITION, MUCH NICER THAN YOU USUALLY SEE THESE PISTOLS.  THIS IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF A COLLECOTR GRADE LATE WW1 PRODUCTION BLACK ARMY THAT CERTAINLY SAW SERVICE IN BOTH WORLD WARS.  PLEASE ALSO CHECK OUT THE MINT CRISP EXAMPLES OF COLT 1911’S ON OUR WEBSITE PRE98 ANTIQUES http://shop.pre98.com/
