U.S. Model 1917 Revolver by Smith & Wesson

U.S. Model 1917 Revolver by Smith & Wesson

Lot # 8 (Sale Order: 8 of 1062)

serial #3625, 45 ACP/AR, 5 1/2" barrel with an excellent bore. This old War Horse has seen only light use in the last 100 plus years and remains in grand condition. The metal surfaces retain about 98% original deep blue finish with scattered light wear on the knuckle and backstrap, high edge wear, a turn ring on the cylinder and light handling marks. This early production gun has concentric grooves on the hammer. The hammer, lanyard ring and trigger retain robust case-hardened colors with the hammer showing light operational and handling wear, the face of the trigger and the ring of the lanyard loop have starting to thin to pewter. The smooth walnut factory grips are numbered to the gun and rate about very good with scattered light handling marks. These grips are the early style that have a flat milled at the top of the panels used by the factory to mount the medallions on civilian guns, later eliminated to decrease felt recoil. Major Gilbert S. Stewart's inspection mark on the frame is crisp as are the other military and factory markings. All appropriate parts are correctly numbered to the gun and it remains fully functional. The Springfield Research Service shows this particular gun was shipped to Springfield Armory on November 10, 1917. You do not find many military guns this old with this much condition unless they were reworked. A solid investment for the military collector. (88873-529) {C&R}

Rare Colt National Match Semi-Auto Pistol with Special Order Front Sight

Rare Colt National Match Semi-Auto Pistol with Special Order Front Sight

Lot # 20 (Sale Order: 20 of 1062)

serial #C177751, 45 ACP, 5” Colt barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces retain about 90% original blue, the loss is due to fading to pewter on front and backstraps, front of the frame and slide wear with the expected light sharp edge and contact point wear showing scattered handling marks from the years and a light reassembly scratch. The fully checkered walnut grips rate very good plus too perhaps near excellent, showing some minor compression of a few of the diamonds, and some light butt edge wear. The pistol has a 1/8” wide serrated Patridge front sight, shipped special-order from the factory. This is confirmed in the included factory letter showing the arm shipping with a 1/8” Patridge front sight in May 1935 to Shapleigh Hardware Company of Missouri for Jay Warshal & Sons of Seattle Washington. Clearly the purchaser was intent on replacing the factory sight with an adjustable sight, a Micro sits in the rear dovetail now, a vintage Elliason would look even better and be correct. There is some minor peening to the breech face of the slide from use over the years but it is unobtrusive and the slide is appropriately numbered to the gun. Included with the arm is a very fine “Colt/45 Auto.”-marked two tone magazine showing just a bit of surface oxidation. A very respectable Colt National Match pistol with the rare special order front sight. (38904-3) {C&R}

The gun locks up perfectly with the top lever still slightly right of center and the arm seems to function well mechanically. These smaller grade DHE’s are getting harder to find, this one remains in excellent plus condition. (38849-7) {MODERN}

serial #20-03857, 20 ga., 26” barrels choked a tight improved cylinder and tight modified with bright excellent bores. The barrels retain about 98-99% original blue showi...moreng only the very latest muzzle wear and perhaps a tiny handling mark here or there. The boxlock frame retains nearly all its original color case-hardening which is vivid in spots and the drifting slightly in others to a darker gray case-hardened tone. The engraving remains crisp throughout and is a faithful reproduction of Parker’s DHE patterns. The long tang triggerguard retains all its original blue with the forend iron hardware fully color case-hardened. The checkered straight grip English walnut buttstock and splinter style forend rate excellent with only the tiniest and very sparse handling marks here and there. The oval German silver monogram plate along the toeline remains un-engraved and the length of pull to the single selective trigger is 14 1/8” showing drops of 1 3/8” and 2”. The gun locks up perfectly with the top lever still slightly right of center and the arm seems to function well mechanically. These smaller grade DHE’s are getting harder to find, this one remains in excellent plus condition. (38849-7) {MODERN}
