Colt Commercial 1911 45 ACP Pistol Made 1919 98%+

This commercial Colt 1911 was made in early 1919 (SN C118773) long before the poisonous influence of academia destroyed the quality culture that had been such a large component of American exceptionalism in manufacturing which could produce superb quality products at very high production rates which kept unit cost remarkably low given the quality delivered. It is in extraordinary condition retaining better than 98% gorgeous original Colt blue with perfectly blended polish lines that one can only marvel at. Besides some concealed light operational thinning the only loss are some scratches on the left frame near the lower left of the slide stop hole with a few more about an inch to the rear of those and thereís a few small oxidation spots scattered about on the slide and a tiny ding in the top edge of the ejection port. The bore is mostly bright and shiny with strong, sharp rifling and some slight frosting mostly near the groove origin. The grips are completely sound with no chips, cracks or flatted points. A truly beautiful example of high quality production that a hundred years later; canít be matched.
