Colt Government .455 Semi Auto
Colt Government semi auto, British contract model in 455 webley auto, one of 1270 purchased during the first world war. Correct magazine stamped 455 Eley, British military acceptance mark's, proofs for nitro powder and stamped RAF. What is interesting is the slide has been mis-stamped and has two rampant colt stamps, normally it would have been refinished or rejected but do to the necessities of war, it was accepted, giving us a very rare example. Part of my own collection, you must have a section 5, 7.1 or 7.3 licence to purchase, viewing by appointment only.
