View Full Version : Who out there is a serious National match collector?

I'm looking to talk to some other collectors. If you don't remember me I have a 1938 National match S/N c1640xx

noted you indicate a national match commerical, 1937, with serial# 1640xx. I have a commercial also, serial# 1856xx, and the book shows it as a 1937 gun. I don't think they jumped around between the commerical and national match. how come you have a lower serial# then my 1937, yet you list it as a 1938. don't make sense to me ?????????

If your Colt is serial # 164XXX it was made in 1932, and is a first year National Match. What kind of questions do you have? All I collect are Prewar NM's....

I have a 1937 NM gun, C18495X, original MB barrel and fixed sights. I also have one of the holy grails for prewar NM collectors, an original slide, never refinished or worked, # 18031X, making it a 1936 manufacture. All the markings are clear and crisp. If you fellows have other questions or information to share with me please do so. I rely on Mullins and Clawson's books as well as the web for most of my research but am always looking for more. Thanks.

Are you asking a question? What do mean the Holy Grails? You have a NM slide that is missing a frame? I'm missing something, Sorry......

by 'holy grail' I take it to mean he has an outstanding item (and I agree) namely: an early NM slide. His formate was a bit classical in wording, but clear if NOT read into.......................in short, he has a very old and hard to get NM slide...........nothing more//////////

That is exactly what I meant. Thanks Romer. Some people get it some don't. If anyone is in need of this slide for a restoration project contact me, I would really like to see it go to finish an original gun rather than a "made up" one.
