In 95% very sharp condition and indeed almost impossible to find this nice, we have a Colt Model of 1909 US Army Service Revolver in .45 Long Colt. This is an all matching example with a mint bore as well. The old colt Carbona Blue finish is extremely fragile and you just do not see these big revolvers in such a high state of preservation. You may recall that these large .45 caliber revolvers were desperately needed by the Army for use in the Philippines, where they were sent there to be used on the Moro Rebels who were doped up on drugs and could not be stopped by the Army’s .38 Colt Service Revolvers. These big Colt’s were just the medicine needed to deal with these savage maniacs.
Most 1909 Revolvers that you will see are pretty well worn so this is an exceptional and rarely seen example that really pops. One of the harder to locate but historically important US Revolvers that continued in service as late at WWII.
