Marked to right side of barrel is standard manufacturer name and address. To left of barrel is model name and caliber markings. There is a rampant Colt marked to left of frame near grip. Serial number is marked to yoke. Item is a match model but appears to have standard grips versus the heavy target grips. According to serial number identification, this item was manufactured sometime in 1950. Includes Colt factory letter.


Very good. Bore is brilliant and rifling is sharp. Metal finish is in great condition, only showing some wear toward end of muzzle most likely from holstering. Lockup is tight and action is functional. Cylinder shows a light drag line which could indicate a timing issue.
