My father recently gave me his 1942 Navy contract Colt 1911
frame serial number: 797136
Matching slide # 797136 with correct UN marking
WB acceptance mark below the slide catch on the frame
flaming bomb ordance mark and lowercase 'g' on the top of the frame in front of the widespur hammer
Original Coltwood grips without the ribbing like the bakelite ones
bluing is about 90-95%


enjoy...

Nice pistol, and appears to be closer to 95% original finish, which is phosphate rather than blue.
What are the barrel markings?

Barrel is marked with what I'm told is the appropriate lower case 'g'

Good Lord, there is hardly any wear showing on the slide rails. Very nice pistol.

WOW! Enjoy! That looks so nice that it should belong to Mr. Holbrook! :D

Your barrel should be marked COLT .45 AUTO on the left side of the chamber right above the lug, and with an upper case small G. Small G is shown on the left side in the photograph.

Sorry for the bad info. Your barrel is the large upper case G, which is correct.

I noticed what appears to be a 9mm, Model-39 S&W in your yahoo photos.
Very nice :-)

Great shooter, but nothing compares to any 1911.


Looking for a Colt Gold Cup or maybe a Springfield TRP or TRP-Pro...any feedback?

Thanks ladies and gents.
