Depends on whose name is on it :image035:QKShooter said:Who wants a Colt with somebody elses name on it?
We'll hafta buy it & then use a Dremel Moto Tool to grind that name off of the slide.
Then I guess we could just use a spray GunKote finish on it to make sure it doesn't rust. :biggrin2:
Just so we all understand.... a pistol produced for the commercial market by Colt is a Government Model, regardless of whether or not it has the 1924 improvements. These pistols will have a C prefix or suffix.
M1911 is a military model designation for military pistols shipped 1912 through 1919, and only refers to pistols produced under contract for the United States Government. Serial range is 1-629500.
M1911A1 is a military model pistol produced in either 1924, or 1937-1945. Serial range is 700001-2660318 and only refers to pistols produced under contract for the United States Government.
The military M1911 and M1911A1 pistols do NOT have a C prefix or suffix. They do have an No (o is underlined) or NO. serial number prefix before the serial number.
The military pistols produced in 1924 were originally designated the Improved Model of 1911. However, in 1926 the M1911A1 designation was approved and made retroactive to include all military pistols in the 700xxx serial range and after, which included the 1924 production military pistols.
Colt's specifically picked the name Government Model for their commercial series of pistols in order to boost interest and sales by promoting the idea that it was the same basic pistol that had been accepted by the military.
