    Here are the barrel markings on my 1914 Canadian Colt; looks like it's a military-marked WWII barrel with the BNP proofs; I've seen many of the WWI 1911s updated with WWII military marked barrels. Colts from serial #712350 to somewhere in the 2 million range number range, (1945 production,) will have barrels with a Gothic “COLT .45 AUTO” marking on the chamber area, along the axis of the barrel, at about 7:30 O’clock, when the barrel is viewed from the rear, with the lug down. A “P” mark will be applied to the left lug. These barrels are fully blued with a semi-matte semi-reflective finish. Forward of the lugs on the bottom of the barrel the "F" or "7" stamping has been observed starting at Colts produced around serial number 930,000 until the end of production. I'd like any observations from fellow forum members.
