NO RESERVE!! Here's a WWI era Colt U.S. Army Model 1917 double-action revolver. This variation of the Colt New Service is chambered for the .45 ACP...the same cartridge used in the 1911 automatic...which greatly simplified ammunition supply. Cartridges are usually loaded via "moon clips" which allows for speedy ejection and reloads. The barrel measures 5-1/2" in length and the sights are fixed. The underside of the barrel is correctly marked "UNITED STATES PROPERTY" and the left side of the frame is marked with the "JMG" initials of Army inspector Major John M. Gilbert. This revolver still retains the original brushed blue finish although it shows general thinning and some areas of flaking/browning. THere is no significant pitting. The smooth walnut grips are of the correct type, but number to different guns. The mechanics function well in double action but the timing is late in single-action with the cylinder not quite rotating to full lock when thumb cocked. The bore is very good and is shiny with sharp rifling. It comes with a 1917 dated Graton & Knight US Holster that has been modified by cutting away the flap.
Buyer pays $20.00 shipping. Your C&R License is acceptable for transfer if permitted in your area.
