If it's been refinished doesn't that imply that it went through an arsenal rebuild? I know that my US&S is parkerized but it also has an "AA" stamp for the Augusta Arsenal. I don't see any such marks on this one. Just asking because I don't know.

Without trying to drag this out Tom (PH68) took the pistol to a professional photographer for pictures that better represent what the pistols appearance is. These photos have been reviewed by another 1911 collector (a fellow forum member) and he indicated that the finish IS actually Dulite which matches your information.
Maybe the following photos will help:









These pictures are way better quality than the first go-round and I hope they help.

Although I won't be putting in a packet for one of the 1911's (my Colt 1911A1 scratches that itch) I certainly will enjoy seeing what everyone gets - much like this thread.
Thanks for posting and am always impressed with the depth of knowledge on this forum.

That seems to agree with info I have been reading. It seems dulite applied over a polished surface will be shinier and blue/black in color, while dulite applied over a blasted surface will give a finish that resembles parkerizing. US&S and other manufacturers did both. That is one beautiful pistol Tom has, thanks for posting up thee picís...


Red special: nice pistols... that 1911 Colt really represents a btdt looking piece of history.

Early 1913 Colt, before the 1913 patent date was added to the slide.
