IN 97%++ VERY SHARP CONDITION, LIKE YOU JUST NEVER SEE, WE HAVE A WONDERFUL EXAMPLE OF AN OCTOBER 1918 BLACK ARMY COLT 1911.  THIS PISTOL IS 100% CORRECT EXACTLY AS IT LEFT COLTS.  THIS PISTOL WAS SHIPPED DURING OCTOBER 1918 STRAIGHT TO FRANCE FROM THE ORDNANCE DEPOT AT BUSH TERMINAL BROOKLYN NY.  IT LIKELY GOT THERE NOT LONG BEFORE THE NOVEMBER 11,  ARMISTICE WENT INTO EFFECT. THIS IS A VERY TOUGH GUN TO FIND WITH SO MUCH ORIGINAL CONDITION AS THE BLACK OXIDE FINISH DISCLOROED AND FLAKED BADLY. ALMSOT 100 YEARS LATER FINDING AND EXAMPLE IN THIS EXCEPTIONAL CONDITION IS A DAUNTING TASK.  DO NOT HESITATE IF YOU WANT A MINTY WW1 COLT.
