Item Description: Translate description
serial #2898, 45 ACP, 5" barrel with a bright excellent bore. This pistol is factory milled on its backstrap for the accompanying shoulder stock and bears all proper markings which remain crisp and fully legible. The metal surfaces of the pistol retain about 80% original blue finish overall with the majority of loss being due to light flaking where the exposed metal shows a lovely smooth brown patina. The left side of the slide shows a little old light oxidation staining and a couple small patches of the finest pinprick pitting. The hammer retains vivid original color case-hardened finish and the trigger retains strong original fire blue. The diamond checkered walnut grips rate excellent retaining 95% original finish and with sharp checkering with just a few points being lightly flattened. The leather holster/shoulder stock has its original brass fitting with checkered steel clasp. The leather rates excellent with light wear on the high edges where the leather is showing brown while the balance retains excellent black polish. All stitching remains intact as does the belt loop on back held in place with spring loaded metal clasp. The pistol comes with a factory letter confirming the configuration of the gun with special features listed as "Furnished with a combination stock and holster". The gun and holster shipped on June 1, 1908 in a five gun shipment to Kimball & Upson in Sacramento. A rare opportunity for the advanced Colt automatic collector to acquire one of these highly sought-after Colt pistol rigs. Investment quality. (17027-5) {C&R}

Estimate: 20000 - 30000
