Default Rng 10028 colt

Got the call Tuesday 5 NOV. Was offered a Field or Rack and chose Field. CC was hit on Wednesday. Thursday evening my gun shop had it but I was delayed by NICS and had to go home empty handed til 10:00 am today. The gun store guy was excited and said he would list it at $1750!

Its got a pretty heavy park job which makes the markings very hard to read. Looks like somebody took a wire brush to the serial number to make it legible.

It a lot darker than the pictures make it look. Had to use a lot of lighting to get the markings to show.

COLT 858399 1942?

That definitely looks heavy. Soak it in oil to darken it up, maybe it’ll help with the markings? Looks like a real nice catch...winner winner!

Mine darkened with a couple doses of oiling

But for the price, how can you beat an actual military 1911a1?
