Guns For Sale - Colt Government Model 1911 -- .45 ACP Semi Auto Pistol - Mf'd 1920 C&R OK

LSB#: 130917XX03

Make: Colt

Model: Model 1911 Government Model

Serial Number: C121208

Year of Manufacture: 1920

Caliber: .45 ACP

Action Type: Single Action, Semi-Automatic with Removable Magazine

Markings: The right side of the frame is marked "GOVERNMENT MODEL / C121208" and the right side of the slide is marked: "COLT AUTOMATIC / CALIBRE 45". The left side of the frame is marked with the Colt verified proof mark at the trigger guard webbing and with a "W". The left side of the slide is marked “PATENTED APR 20, 1897. SEPT. 9,1902 / DEC 19, 1905. FEB. 14,1911. AUG. 19,1913”, there is a Rampant Colt and then “COLT’S PT. F.A. MFG. CO / HARTFORD, CT. U.S.A.” The underside of the slide is marked with a "Y" and a "6". The Inside of the frame is marked with an "S".

Barrel Length: 5"

Sights / Optics: The front sight is a fixed blade. The rear sight is a dovetail set "U" notch.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The grips are original Walnut panels, with original finish and the Double Diamond pattern. The panels are lightly aged and show a very nice color, as darkened from handling. The checkering is quite pronounced, though there is wear to the points of both panels' checkering. The bottom front edge of the left panel is missing a small sliver. There are no other cracks. The grips rate in about Fine to Excellent overall condition, considering the propensity these had to wear and their age.

Type of Finish: Blue

Finish Originality: Factory Original

Bore Condition: The bore is a little dull, with clean but slightly worn rifling. There is very mild erosion in the grooves, especially towards the chamber.

Overall Condition: This handgun retains about 80% of its metal finish. A lot of original blue is retained, with thinning at the front strap, edges and radius of the slide. There is a patch of chemical loss to the left of the ejection port and wear at the front edges of the slide. There are some surface dings from improper assembly and disassembly at the takedown lever. There is a mild and attractive drift towards a light patina, and though the surfaces are a bit frosted, there is no significant erosion. The slide and frame match well and this is definitely a far better than average 1920 1911. The screw heads are marked up a bit but remain very serviceable. The markings are crisp. Overall, this handgun rates in about Very Good to Fine condition.

Mechanics: The action functions properly. We did not fire this handgun.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: One unmarked two tone magazine is included. The 7-round magazine is fully functional and rates in about Fair condition, with a lot more thinning, discoloration and surface erosion than the pistol.

Our Assessment: This is a much better than average commercial 1911, and one of the better ones we have seen from the post WWI years. Only 6,000 commercial 1911's were made in 1920, making this a rarer production run. You would be hard pressed to find a gun with a more honest appearance from this range of 1911's. The greatest gun ever designed, and one that will display exceptionally well.

This handgun CAN be sold as a Private Party Transfer (PPT) at our Simi Valley shop. All cartridge firing handguns (even C&R's and antiques) sold to a California resident must be DROS'd.
